A review of goblet cell carcinoid of the appendix was undertaken. This interesting tumor appears to lie somewhere between an ordinary carcinoid and a well differentiated adenocarcinoma of the appendix in regard to its biologic behavior. The histologic features of the goblet cell carcinoid of the appendix are distinctive enough to facilitate a diagnosis, although the histogenesis remains controversial and unsettled. The prognosis is generally good in a patient treated by simple appendectomy, the treatment of choice in the majority of patients.
