Abstract

Appendix adenocarcinoma associated with ulcerative colitis (UC) is extremely rare. Pathological examination of a man with 6-year history of UC revealed a primary appendix adenocarcinoma mixed with adenoma component. Dysplasia was not identified. The adenoma-carcinoma sequence, but not the dysplasia-carcinoma sequence, might be involved in this UC-associated appendix adenocarcinoma.
