Abstract

Multicystic Peritoneal Mesotheliomas (MPMs) are rare tumours characterised by recurrent mesothelial inclusion cysts. Less than 200 cases have been reported worldwide. Only 10 cases have been reported from India. Though they have strong predilection for peritoneum of the pelvic and abdominal organs, few cases have been reported in extraperitoneum and retroperitoneum too. MPMs are mainly a tumour of females of reproductive age group who have had some abdominopelvic pathology/surgery. Very few cases have been reported in men, mostly in the middle to elderly age group and like their female counterparts, associated with a history of some past abdominopelvic pathology/surgery. Only one case has been reported in a young male in the literature till date. We document here a case of multicystic mesothelioma presenting in an 18-year-old young male in the retroperitoneum who had no such significant past history.
