Low grade appendiceal mucinous neoplasms (LAMNs) include all mucinous tumors of the appendix without an infiltrative histological pattern, either confined to the appendix or that have spread to the peritoneum (pseudomyxoma peritoneii), according to the WHO Classification1 (Suppl 1). The ovarian involvement from LAMN is not uncommon and in most cases is the first evidence of primitive LAMNs. Metastatic LAMNs to the ovary are more indolent and have a better prognosis than metastatic appendiceal adenocarcinomas.2
