A case of multicystic peritoneal mesothelioma involving the pelvic serosal surface is reported. Morphological and immunohisto­chemical findings agree with the suggested mesothelial origin of this lesion. Lymphangioma was excluded by the unreactivity to Factor VIII related antigen, ULEX-E I and CD31. Recurrence after a few months from the first surgical resection disagrees with the reactive hyperplastic nature proposed; a tendency to recur was independent from the absence of an aggressive growth pattern and cytologic atypia.
