Abstract:

Primary papillary serous carcinoma of the peritoneum (PSCP) is a rare malignant neoplasm of epithelial origin seen only in women, and closely mimics serous ovarian papillary carcinoma except for the absence of ovarian involvement in PSCP on imaging. It is primarily a peritoneal disease with imaging findings simulated by other conditions that have a predominant peritoneal involvement.
