Abstract : Carcinoid tumors of the appendix constitute about 0.2-0.8% of all appendectomies. The tumors are usually asymptomatic and discovered by pathology of the removed appendix. Tumors > two cm, at the base of the appendix, with invasion or metastasis, need hemicolectomy, while those <1cm can be treated with appendectomy. Tumors size one cm to two cm should be treated case by case. We presented a 38-year-old female treated by delayed hemicolectomy for incidentally found cecal appendix classic carcinoid.
