Bermejo R, Gómez A, Galiana N, Campos A, Puente R, Bas E, Díaz-Caneja C - Case Rep Obstet Gynecol (2012)

Bottom Line: We describe a case of multiple peritoneal nodules with cysts at the free border of the omento and other locations of the peritoneal surfaces.The omentum and several fragments of the abdominal peritoneum were also removed.Microscopic diagnosis was Disseminated Peritoneal Endosalpingiosis-Leiomyomatosis.

ABSTRACT
We describe a case of multiple peritoneal nodules with cysts at the free border of the omento and other locations of the peritoneal surfaces. A total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingooophorectomy were performed for a myomatous uterus and bilateral ovarian cysts. The omentum and several fragments of the abdominal peritoneum were also removed. Microscopic diagnosis was Disseminated Peritoneal Endosalpingiosis-Leiomyomatosis.

fig1: Multiple solid-cystic tumors in the free border of the omentum.

Mentions: The surgical specimen consisted of a uterus with multiple leiomyomas and double adnexae with Mature Cystic Teratomas (Dermoid Cyst) in both ovaries. The omento and several biopsies of the abdominal peritoneum were also received. Multiple nodules between 0.2 and 3 cm were found in the free border of the omento. The smaller ones were solid while the others had cystic areas with smooth wall and clear liquid (Figure 1). Microscopic features: cysts were lined by cuboidal or columnar epithelial cell (Figure 2); many of them were ciliated (Figure 3), and surrounded by smooth muscle (Figures 4 and 5). No mitotic figures or atypia were identified. The diagnosis was Peritoneal Endosalpingiosis-Leiomyomatosis, Bilateral Ovarian Mature Cystic Teratomas, and Uterine Multiple Leiomyomas.
