  • adenoma
  • proposed separating pseudomyxoma peritonei cases into two diagnostic categories: adenoma (disseminated peritoneal adenomucinosis, DPAM) or carcinoma (peritoneal mucinous carcinomatosis, PMCA) with a third category reserved for cases with intermediate features. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a clinical condition caused by cancerous cells (mucinous adenocarcinoma) that produce abundant mucin or gelatinous ascites. (wikipedia.org)
  • primary
  • Primary mucinous adenocarcinoma of the renal pelvis is extremely rare, with only ~100 cases reported till now. (eurekamag.com)
  • We report a case of primary mucinous adenocarcinoma of the renal pelvis misdiagnosed as ureteropelvic junction stenosis with a renal pelvis stone. (eurekamag.com)
  • Cases of PMCA were characterized by peritoneal lesions composed of more abundant mucinous epithelium with the architectural and cytologic features of carcinoma (irregular cells, evidence that cells were rapidly dividing, and other criteria), with or without an associated primary mucinous adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cancer
  • Low-grade mucinous adenocarcinoma is used by the American Joint Committee on Cancer and World Health Organization and is nearly or completely synonymous with the DPAM designation. (wikipedia.org)
  • term
  • The term mucinous adenocarcinoma is used in different contexts depending on the reference material used by the pathologist for disease classification. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • Microscopically, the neoplastic epithelial cells tend to grow along the alveolar walls, in a fashion similar to the mucinous variant of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma, a more common form of adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
