PSEUDOMYXOMA PERITONEI: A CASE REPORT OF SYNCHRONOUS LESIONS FROM APPENDIX AND OVARY

Vanukuru Siddhardha, Kaushik Hari, Sushama Surapaneni

Abstract :

PSEUDOMYXOMA PERITONEI (PMP) is a rare tumor well known for its mucin production mainly arising from perforated appendix and/or ovary , which later gets implanted in the abdominal cavity and diffusely involving the peritoneal surfaces. It has an incidence of 1-2 in a million[1]. Classically it is characterized by massive abdominal distension and nutritional compromise in most cases due to diffuse intra-abdominal gelatinous collections (jelly belly) with mucinous implants on peritoneal surfaces and the omentum[2]. Optimal treatment involves a combination of cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). Following CRS with HIPEC, 5-year survival ranges from 62.5% to 100% for low grade, and 0%-65% for high grade disease. This is a case report which discusses the presentation and treatment options
