Lugaresi M. L., Mattioli S., Pilotti V., Guernelli N.


PDF


The authors describe the clinical case of a 54 year old patient, affected by malignant peritoneal mesothelioma treated by chemotherapy, who subsequently developed a lung lesion, treated by surgical wedge resection. The histologic examination of the surgical specimen, which led to the diagnosis of an intraparenchymal necrotic focus, confirms the favourable result of the adjuvant therapy. A review of the literature showing the rarity of lung metastases from malignant peritoneal mesothelioma is presented.
