Abstract

Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is an uncommon disease with locally-invasive attitude. Intrathoracic spread is rarely reported and its management extremely challenging. A 51-year-old Caucasian female presented with left pleural carcinosis 9-months after two sequential abdominal surgical procedures combined with HIPEC for low-grade PMP. Cytoreductive surgery (pleurectomy/decortication) was followed by 60-minutes hyperthermic intrathoracic chemotherapy mitomycin-C (215 mg/ m2) infusing at same temperature (42°C) and intrapleural pression (2-4 mmH2O). No intra-operative complication occurred, the post-op stay was uneventful and no sign of recurrence was observed 9-months after surgery. Cytoreductive thoracic surgery and hyperthermic chemotherapy (HITHOC) could be a feasible therapeutic option in very selected cases.
