Figure 1:: A 56-year-old man with a mucinous adenocarcinoma in the appendix (Case 2).(a) A coronal computed tomography scan of the appendix shows cystic dilatation of the appendix (arrow, A) and irregular wall thickening. (b) Axial sonography of the appendix also shows cystic dilatation of the appendix and irregular wall thickening (arrow, B). (c) A low-power microphotograph shows a cystic, dilated appendix with abundant intraluminal mucin (H and E, ×10). (d) The appendiceal lumen is lined by a mixture of high-grade, pseudostratified, columnar, neoplastic epithelium and low-grade, mucinous epithelium (H and E, ×40)
