Its diagnosis is guided by history, physical examination and imaging, as well as pathological examination which defines this carcinomatosis. Its management should be multidisciplinary and must insist on support treatment and guidance. Prognosis was changed by the advent of intraperitoneal chemotherapy combined with surgery.
