Tumor papilar peritoneal seroso de bajo potencial maligno.: Comunicación de un caso
Papillary serous carcinoma with low malignant potential, similar to those described in the ovary, can also originate in the peritoneum. Characteristically they show peritoneal spread without involvement of the ovary and, if present, it corresponds to a superficial implant similar to those seen in the rest of the peritoneal cavity. Histologically they correspond to a low malignant potential tumor; they are slow growing and have good prognosis. They are common in young women, usually they present few symptoms and are frequently discovered during other surgical procedures. The treatment is surgical and it can be conservative in cases of women who want to preserve their fertility, without coadyuvant therapy. We report a 34 years old woman with a primary peritoneal serous carcinoma with low malignant potential and discuss its management.
