Mucinous cystadenoma is a rare tumour of the appendix and is associated with mucocele formation as well as an increased risk of adenocarcinoma of the colon and ovaries. Preoperative imaging is important for diagnosing mucocele formation, associated complications, and malignancies. A rare case of mucinous cystadenoma and a review of the clinical and radiological features of mucinous cystadenoma are presented.
