The evaluation of 73 appendiceal lesions fulfilling the criteria of so-called “mucocele” showed that they comprise 3. distinctive clinicopathologic entities: 1) Focal or diffuse mucosal hyperplasia, with no epithelial atypia and mild distention of the lumen (18 cases). The microscopic pattern is highly reminiscent of the colonic hyperplastic polyp. This is a benign lesion, almost always a pathologic finding in appendices removed incidentally. Of the 18 cases classified as such, 5 were ...

Eight cases of a primary mediastinal endocrine neoplasm with the appearance of carcinoid tumor are presented, and the 8 cases previously reported are reviewed. These neoplasms occur in adults, most often in males, and are located in the anterior or anterosuperior mediastinum. The only effective treatment is surgical excision. Their natural history is similar to carcinoid tumors of other locations, especially those arising from derivatives of the foregut. They are characterized ...

Three cases of multiple endocrine adenomatosis (MEA) associated with a mediastinal endocrine neoplasm are presented. The mediastinal tumor was morphologically identical to the one described by us in 8 patients who did not have MEA. It behaved in an aggressive fashion and was the cause of death in all 3 cases. We regard this neoplasm as belonging to the family of carcinoid tumors and suggest an origin from the thymus gland.
