Diffuse Peritoneal Adenomucinosis is a histologic entity that corresponds to a Pseudomixoma Peritonei (PMP) with benign clinical behaviour. It's an uncommon disease characterised by mucinous ascites and multifocal amorphous mucous substance involving the peritoneal surface, omentum and bowel loops. Although the origin of such pathology is still unclear, it could be due to the perforation of an ovarian mucinous cystoadenoma or appendiceal mucocele, with following dissemination of the cellular materiai capable to establish itself in to the peritoneal surface or, also, to the direct intra-abdominal transformation of the peritoneal mesothelium into mucin-producing tissue. A case of diffuse peritoneal adenomucinosis occurred in a young woman is reported.
