Pseudomyxoma peritonei

Pseudomyxoma peritonei

  • Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a rare condition where a mucinous tumour of the appendix perforates and spreads causing accumulation of mucin throughout the abdomen.
  • Complete macroscopic tumour removal combined with heated intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is the only promising treatment for a complete cure.
  • Our hospital is one of the few in Japan that can offer this optimal treatment (standard of care) for PMP.
