A Rare Case of Mucinous Neoplasm of the Appendix - Low-Grade Appendiceal Mucinous Neoplasm (LAMN) Developed Against the Background of Chronic Ulcerohemorrhagic Colitis

Taseva A*, Tasev V, Hristova S, Topalov Y

Mucinous neoplasms of the appendix are rare epithelial tumors. Their pathohistological assessment and nomenclature is undergoing development, which is reflected in the proposed classifications. The treatment of this pathology is individualized. Appendectomy is usually performed for histological analysis, and extension of the resection depends on the histological result. The combination with other pathology may aggravate the prognosis. We observed such a clinical case of low-grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasm (LAMN), which developed against the background of chronic ulcero-hemorrhagic colitis in a young patient with a family cancer history.
