Abstract

An unusual case of a malignant peritoneal mesothelioma arising in the pouch of Douglas is presented. The tumor spread along the serosal surfaces of this space but invaded the bowel cephalad to it. A high degree of suspicion aids in considering this rare tumor in the differential diagnosis and early detection may lead to improved survival.
