Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare tumor characterized by the presence of mucous disseminated throughout the peritoneal cavity generally arising from the rupture of an appendicular mucocele. Liver scalloping is a highly suggestive image of pseudomyxoma and corresponds to the indentation of the liver compressed by the gelatinous mucin.
