In selected patients, appendiceal mucocele can be removed laparoscopically. This patient presented with symptoms of abdominal pain and anorexia; imaging revealed a 13 x 6.5 cm structure consistent with an appendiceal mucocele and overlying appendicitis. The mucocele was safely removed laparoscopically, with negative margins. 6 month follow up CT and colonoscopy was negative for residual disease.
