Mixed goblet cell carcinoid-adenocarcinoma in the gastrointestinal tract is a rare disease. The incidence of such tumors have been reported to range from 0.3-4.3%. A 70-year-old female presented with acute intestinal obstruction. Explorative laparotomy revealed tumor in the tip of appendix, stricture of distal ileum around 30 cm proximal to ileo-cecal junction due to circumferential serosal deposits of metastatic tumor leading to acute intestinal obstruction. Widespread metastasis was present with ascitis. Histopathological examination revealed mixed goblet cell carcinoid-adenocarcinoma of appendix with metastasis of mixed features in ileum and omentum. Appendicectomy and resection of the stricture with end to end anastomosis was performed.
