Abstract

Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare condition characterized by mucinous ascites associated with peritoneal and omental implants. This is most commonly originated from mucinous tumor of the ovary or appendix. We have experienced a case of pseudomyxoma peritonei associated with borderline mucinous tumor of both ovaries and appendix. We concluded that the appendix is the primary lesion of pseudomyxoma peritonei by various immunohistochemical stains and therefore reporting this case with the brief review of literatures.
