[Perityphlitic abscess after perforated appendicitis with carcinoid of the appendix].Helv Chir Acta. 1994 Dec; 60(6):943-4.HC
Appendix carcinoid in children is a rare condition which is found by accident at the histological examination of the appendix. We report on a rare case in which a covered perforation of a diverticulum had occurred. First of all the patient was treated conservatively with antibiotics and 2 months later the appendectomy à froid was performed. The annual follow-up of these patients is certainly indicated.
