Abstract
Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is an uncommon entity characterized by large amount of mucinous-jelatinous fluid disseminated in abdominal cavity and pelvic cavity with implants on omentum and bowel. The symptoms of this disease are mostly abdominal distension, dyspepsia, and intraabdominal palpable mass. The origin of PMP is under investigation yet, that is known to arise from appendix, ovary mostly. Also it's etiology, treatment, and prognosis are speculative. Rare cases were reported that have invasion to other organ except appendix and ovaries, but we experienced a case of PMP associated with borderline mucinous tumor of ovary with invasive metastasis of bladder. So we report this case with a brief review with literature.
Key Words: Pseudomyxoma peritonei, Bladder invasion, Ovarian borderline mucinous tumor
