Title:
Pseudomyxoma peritonei: unusual origin from an ovarian mature cystic teratoma.
Authors:
Pranesh, Nagarajan; Menasce, Lia P; Wilson, Malcolm S; O'Dwyer, Sarah T
Abstract:
Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is classified into pathologically and prognostically distinct categories, such as disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis (DPAM) and peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis. There is overwhelming evidence that DPAM arises from a mucinous adenoma of the appendix. The one exception to this is the presentation of a mature ovarian cystic teratoma as PMP where the appendix is normal. This report describes such a case and discusses the presentation, histopathology, and treatment options.
