First described by Rokitansky in 1842, an appendiceal mucocele (AM) occurs in 0.2-0.3%, of appendectomy specimens and can be a result of four entities: mucosal hyperplasia, retention cysts, mucinous cystadenomas, or mucinous cystadenocarcinomas.
Twelve women (60.0%) had benign masses in group A (specifically, five mucinous adenomas, four mature cystic teratomas, two serous cystadenomas, and one paratubal cyst), seven women (35.0%) had malignant masses (specifically, one Krukenberg tumor, one dysgerminoma, one malignant mixed tumor, one immature teratoma, one mucinous adenocarcinoma, and two primitive neuroectodermal tumors (PNETs)), and one woman (5.0%) was diagnosed with borderline mucinous tumor.
