Abstract

The aim of this study was to describe 2 cases of primary peritoneal malignant mixed müllerian tumor (MMMT). Two patients with primary peritoneal MMMT were examined for their clinical and pathologic features. We describe 2 cases of primary peritoneal MMMT in which the carcinomatous and mesenchymal components were readily identifiable, predominantly involving the peritoneum, with no ovarian involvement. The peritoneum and ovaries, with their common embryologic origin, likely account for the peritoneum's ability to undergo a similar malignant transformation, with the resultant genesis of an MMMT of peritoneal origin.
