Conclusion

Primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix is a rare disease which produces no characteristic clinical symptoms other than that of appendicitis or of its complications. It usually defies preoperative diagnosis. In our hospital which is representative of the average general hospital, we have encountered only one proven case of primary adenocarcinoma of the appendix in a twenty-five year period.
