Overview

Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a very rare tumor characterized by the presence of abundant mucus in the abdominal cavity, it is more common in females and usually arises from an appendiceal tumor, but it can originate from ovary or colon as well. It has an incident rate of 0.1 cases per 100,000 people per year.

  • Pseudomyxoma peritonei is slightly more common in females than males.
