Abstract

Mesotheliomas are rare neoplasms of the pleura, peritoneum or pericardium, which are frequently associated with exposure to asbestos. Early diagnosis and establishment of a standard treatment for malignant peritoneal mesothelioma is difficult. We report on a case of malignant peritoneal mesothelioma in a 53-year-old woman with no history of exposure to asbestos or previous radiotherapy.
