Peritoneal pseudomixome (PMP) is a rare clinical condition characterized by a localized or generalized accumulation of gelatin-like content, associated in most cases with mucinous tumors of the digestive tract, and more rarely ovaries.
Based on the presentation of the clinical case of MBP caused by ovarian border neoplasia, the effect of cytoreduction on the further course of the disease as an independent treatment method was analyzed.
The clinical case presented in this article reflects a rare combination of borderline ovarian tumor with PMP. The effectiveness of performing cytoreductive surgery has been proved, which calls into question the advisability of chemotherapy in patients with tumors of a potentially low degree of malignancy.
Key words: borderline mucinous cystadenoma, pseudomyxoma peritonei, debulking.
