The carcinoids are the most frequent tumors arising from the appendix, in majority of the cases, these are asymptomatic and are discovered after appendectomy. The lipid-rich carcinoid, also known as clear cell carcinoid; is histologically characterized by the presence of clear vacuoles in the cytoplasm of tumor cells. Only 24 cases of lipid-rich carcinoid of the appendix are described in the English literature, and there is no report of this entity in the Indian literature. In this report we describe a first case of lipid-rich carcinoid of the appendix in India and also present a review of the literature.
