Goblet cell carcinoid tumor of the appendix. Report of five cases and review of the literature.


Five cases of goblet cell carcinoid tumor of the appendix showed characteristic histologic features that justified classification of these lesions as mucinous variants of carcinoid tumor. The tumor has low-grade malignancy, and metastases are uncommon. Resemblance to mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix is striking, and the features that help to differentiate the two lesions are delineated.
