This is a case report of a diffuse malignant peritoneal mesothelioma in a 31-year-old woman. The patient presented with pains in the small pelvis followed by abdominal distension. By pelvic ultrasonography a tumorous mass of cystic architecture was verified in the small pelvis. She was submitted to laparoscopy. The diagnosis of the disease was established by histopathological examina­tion of the material sample taken during laparoscopy. The patient was subsequently submitted to laparotomy upon which peri­tonectomy, omentectomy and appendectomy were performed. Postoperative combined chemotherapy was given. The patient has been well since completion of the treatment.
