Abstract Carcinomas of peritoneal origin represent a seldom diagnosed entity of unknown etiology, with important implications in terms of prophylactic oophorectomy. Initially described in patients belonging to families at high risk for ovarian cancer, it possibly has a pathogeny similar to that of endosalpingiosis and of some cases of endometriosis. We report a case of peritoneal borderline mucinous carcinoma with an anatomopathological diagnosis of normal ovaries.

O carcinoma de peritôneo é raro, de etiologia desconhecida, tendo grande importância quando se dicute a ooforectomia profilática como prevenção do carcinoma de ovário. Foi inicialmente descrito em pacientes de famílias de alto risco para carcinoma de ovário, o que possibilita haver patogenia semelhante àquela observada em endossalpingiose ou alguns casos de endometriose. Relata-se, no presente estudo, caso de carcinoma mucinoso borderline de peritôneo, com exame histopatológico mostrando ovários normais.
