      <ArticleTitle>Intra-Operative Diagnosis of Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of The Appendix: A Case Report</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Primary Appendiceal neoplasms are rare and commonly difficult to diagnose due to their lack of specific clinical features. Here, we report an interesting case of an 86 year old otherwise fit and well lady presenting to this author’s surgical assessment unit with a several week history of right sided abdominal pain and swelling, with the clinical features giving the clinical impression of a strangulated Spigelian Hernia. This was further backed up by the reported CT imaging of the abdomen. Intra-operative findings instead revealed extra-Peritoneal mucus with a macroscopically normal Appendix entering the abdominal wall defect. The pathological specimen was histologically confirmed to be a well differentiated Mucinous Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix.</Abstract>
