Benign peritoneal cystic mesothelioma as differential diagnose of an ovarian dependant tumor. Case report and review of the literature
PDF size: 217.92 Kb.
ABSTRACTBenign cystic mesothelioma is an uncommon lesion of the peritoneum, occurring predominantly in women of reproductive age. The present case is a multitreated perimenopausal woman with lower urinary tract symptoms without clinical improvement despite the treatment, and pelvic pain with physical findings and radiology studies of a probable ovarian mass dependant tumoration, requiring protocolized exploratory laparotomy, finding a benign cystic mesothelioma. Despite the low incidence of this tumoration the gynecologist must be familiar with this disease, because of the high recurrence. Nowadays, steroid hormone receptors typification seems to play an important role to control the recurrence of this tumoration.
