Mucocele of the appendix is a term used to describe a dilated, mucin-filled appendix. It is most commonly the result of epithelial proliferation, but can be caused by inflammation or obstruction of the appendix.

A well-circumscribed tubular, elongated cystic lesion is seen in the right iliac fossa with curvilinear mural calcification in the inferior part of the lesion. No surrounding fat stranding or abnormal lymph nodes are seen.
