Pseudomyxoma peritonei induced by a well-differentiated appendicular
mucinous adenocarcinoma: An uncommon cause of isolated ascites in a
young man patient
Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) remains difficult to diagnose and has a
guarded prognosis. Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare entity, of
appendicular origin in the majority of cases. Its clinical
symptomatology is not specific, the diagnosis is evoked by imaging and
surgery, and confirmed by histology.
