[Article in Japanese]


A 50-year-old male was referred to our hospital for the further evaluation and treatment of abdominal pain. He was diagnosed with complicated appendicitis using computed tomography. After conservative treatment, he underwent an interval appendectomy. A histopathological examination revealed a goblet cell carcinoid(GCC)of the appendix with subserosal invasion. He underwent laparoscopic ileocecal resection with D3 lymph node dissection. Histopathological findings showed neither residual tumor nor lymph node metastasis. The patients is currently followed as an outpatient without recurrence. Here we report our experience with GCC, a rare disease.
