Abstract

Abstract The clinical course of seventeen patients with pseudomyxoma peritonei is described. Superior survival rates were observed in five patients who underwent multiple excisional procedures combined with the use of alkylating agents. Oral estrogen therapy appeared to benefit two postmenopausal patients in whom it was utilized. Radiotherapy was ineffective. Implications for the therapeutic management of these patients are discussed.
