Abstract
"Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a clinical entity in which the peritoneal surface and omentum are involved with gelatinous, mucinous implants, and often massive gelatinous ascites. Most cases originate from ruptured ovarian mucinous cysts or appendiceal mucoceles, and involve only the intraperitoneal cavity. But there is much confusion about its etiology, clinical manifestation, treatment, and prognosis. We experienced a case of pseudomyxoma peritonei originating from the mucinous cystic tumor of borderline malignancy in unilateral ovary with rupture. A case of pseudomyxoma peritonei is reported with a brief review of the literature."
Key Words: Pseudomyxoma peritonei
