Pseudomyxoma peritonei of appendiceal origin. The memorial sloan‐kettering cancer center experience
Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome
Pseudomyxoma peritonei of appendiceal origin is a rare low-grade malignancy. Initial treatment consists of cytoreduction in an attempt to render the patient locally disease-free. Long-term survival can be obtained by operation alone, even if gross disease is present at the end of the procedure. Systemic chemotherapy should be reserved for patients with proven recurrence.
