Abstract

A 42-year-old woman with malignant pleural mesothelioma was admitted initially to the Texas Heart Institute in 1967 for removal of a chest wall tumor. She subsequently underwent 17 additional thoracotomies for removal of recurrent localized tumor during a 15-year period. She died in 1982 at age 56 from cardiopulmonary failure secondary to extensive recurrent mesothelioma.
