Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a clinical entity characterized by gelatinous ascites associated with mucinous deposits disseminated over the peritoneum and potentially invading abdominal organs. It is considered a tumoral process linked in the vast majority of cases to a mucinous appendicular tumor or one of ovarian origin.
