  Abstract  
  Although rare, carcinoid tumor of the appendix is the most common neoplasm of the gastrointestinal tract in children and adolescents. It is usually an incidental finding after open or laparoscopic appendectomy, with a frequency of 2 to 5 cases per 1000 appendectomies. Several series have reported cases in children, but review of the literature failed to reveal cases identified during interval appendectomy. We report a case of a young female with carcinoid tumor of 1.5 cm identified on interval appendectomy for previously perforated appendicitis. This report may reinforce the advocates of routine interval appendectomy for every perforated appendicitis treated non-operatively in childhood.
