Abstract

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.
