Localized malignant mesothelioma in the stomach and mediastinum

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Localized malignant mesothelioma is rare. It has a histological pattern identical to diffuse malignant mesothelioma but without diffuse serosal spread. Localized malignant mesothelioma typically originates from the pleura, peritoneum or pericardium, but can occasionally develop from organs. Our cases represent what might be the largest mediastinal localized malignant mesothelioma described and the first presentation of the epithelioid type in the stomach of an adult.
