Abstract

Malignant mesotheliomas are aggressive neoplasms arising from mesothelial cells lining the body cavities. Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) account for about one-third of the cases. Though the ovarian involvement may be seen in the background of a diffuse peritoneal involvement, the presentation of MPM as a primary ovarian mass is rare. Here we present such a case who underwent surgery but had residual progressive lesion. She received further chemotherapy resulting in a complete response and is disease free for almost a year.
