Malignant mesothelioma is a diffuse tumor arising in the pleura, peritoneum, or other serosal surface and is closely associated with asbestos exposure. An estimated 2,500 to 3,000 cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. Although there are individual case reports and small series detailing the clinical aspects of mesothelioma, few studies examine a large series of patients with malignant mesothelioma from the clinical perspective. This study reports on the findings of 238 cases of… Expand
Changing Pattern in Malignant Mesothelioma Survival
TLDR
Peritoneal mesothelioma was more likely associated with non-occupational exposure, thus emphasizing the importance of exposure history in enhancing early diagnosis and treatment impact. Expand
Mesothelioma in Mongolia: case report
TLDR
The first reported case of mesothelioma in Mongolia is described and the creation of an asbestos related disease registry is recommended in order to properly track asbestos related diseases in the country. Expand
Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma: correlation between CT imaging features and histologic subtypes
TLDR
Sarcomatoid type of MPM showed significant correlation with more aggressive imaging features of metastases and visceral infiltration as compared to epithelioid type. Expand
Characterization of a French series of female cases of mesothelioma.
TLDR
These results will allow hypotheses to be generated about associations between mesothelioma and non-occupational asbestos exposure, X-ray exposure and history of respiratory disease. Expand
Localized multiple malignant epithelioid peritoneal mesotheliomas arising from the hepatoduodenal ligament and diaphragm: a case report
TLDR
It is recommended that multiple malignant epithelioid mesotheliomas be included in the differential diagnosis for patients with subcapsular hepatic tumors and early diagnosis and treatment, particularly with the localized type, could lead to long-term survival of the patient. Expand
Life Expectancy in Pleural and Peritoneal Mesothelioma
TLDR
Life expectancies were markedly reduced from normal, even amongst 5-year survivors with the most favorable characteristics and treatment options, and survival improved only modestly over the study period. Expand
Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma with lymph node metastasis that originated in the transverse colon
TLDR
An extremely rare case of resection of localized biphasic malignant peritoneal mesothelioma of the transverse colon of a 72-year-old man who died 18 months after surgery due to lack of postoperative chemotherapy. Expand
Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma in a Patient with Systemic Sclerosis: The First Report
TLDR
A 58-year-old never-smoker female, previously diagnosed with limited cutaneous SSc, who presented with chest pain on the left side, dyspnea and circumferential nodular left pleural thickening is described, the first report of MPM in a patient with SSc. Expand
Malignant peritoneal mesothelioma with chronic hepatitis B cirrhosis
TLDR
Histopathological examination showed that the tumor was composed of spindle cells with large quantities collagen fibers, and Epithelial Membrane Antigen, Calretinim, AE1/AE33 showed negative results by immunohistochemical examination. Expand
Malignant Peritoneal Mesothelioma Presenting as Mucinous Ascites
We present a rare case of a 46-year-old man presenting with mucinous ascites secondary to malignant peritoneal mesothelioma (MPM) that was diagnosed via colonoscopy with biopsies. Both our findingsExpand

TLDR
Within the confines of this retrospective study and the small number of patients undergoing multimodality therapy, the role of surgery in the treatment of MPM remains unclear and further investigation is warranted to determine the optimal treatment strategy. Expand

A number of important features of testicular mesothelioma are emphasized; a wide age range with occasional occurrence at a young age, a wide morphologic spectrum with regard to degree of differentiation, and an aggressive natural history with a potential for late recurrence or metastasis of even well-differentiated tumors, suggesting the need for initial aggressive surgical treatment.
