Mucinous cystadenoma emerges as a benign, localized, cystic tumefaction permeated with mucin and enmeshed within a fibrous tissue wall. Neoplasm is layered with well differentiated, mucinous columnar epithelium and is commonly confined to pancreas, ovaries or appendix. Additionally, mucinous cystadenoma may incriminate hepatic parenchyma, mammary glands, ovaries, urinary bladder or retroperitoneal area. The benign mucinous cystadenoma exceptionally incriminates pulmonary parenchyma.
