Spontaneous Regression of Thoracic and Extraperitoneal Glial Implants in Child With Gliomatosis Peritonei After Resection of Ovarian Teratoma

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol. 2015 Apr;37(3):230-1. doi: 10.1097/MPH.0000000000000230.

Abstract

Gliomatosis peritonei is a rare condition associated with ovarian teratomas. Even rarer is extraperitoneal gliomatosis. We present a case of extraperitoneal gliomatosis with pleural implants and implants within the flank muscles, which regressed after resection of the primary tumor.
