Arch Surg. 1979;114(6):736-737. doi:10.1001/archsurg.1979.01370300090018
Abstract

• Mucocele of the appendix is rare and occasionally is accompanied by calcification. In a recent case, an eggshell-thin calcified mucocele fractured to produce an acute abdomen. This situation was not found in a review of the literature. A brief summary of the properties of mucocele is presented.
