Abstract

GIRAO, Manoel João Batista Castello; SARTORI, Marair Gracio Ferreira; GONCALVES, Wagner José  and  LIMA, Geraldo Rodrigues de. Peritoneal borderline cystoadenocarcinoma. Sao Paulo Med. J. [online]. 1998, vol.116, n.1, pp. 1634-1636. ISSN 1516-3180.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-31801998000100008.

Carcinomas of peritoneal origin represent a seldom diagnosed entity of unknown etiology, with important implications in terms of prophylactic oophorectomy. Initially described in patients belonging to families at high risk for ovarian cancer, it possibly has a pathogeny similar to that of endosalpingiosis and of some cases of endometriosis. We report a case of peritoneal borderline mucinous carcinoma with an anatomopathological diagnosis of normal ovaries.

Keywords : Peritoneum; Peritoneal carcinoma; Peritoneal adenocarcinoma.
