Abstract

Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a relatively uncommon condition primarily associated with neoplasms of the appendiceal epithelium. It is characterized by non-specific clinical manifestations, leading to a high rate of misdiagnosis. This report describes the case of a 62-year-old male patient with recurrent and metastatic PMP. The patient first experienced unexplained epigastric pain and paroxysmal abdominal pain accompanied by distension over 8 years ago. He underwent surgical interventions for the condition in other hospitals in 2015 and 2018, respectively.
