Abstract

We report on clinical features of 113 cases of pathologically confirmed Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma, observed in Genoa (Italy) between 1979 and 1985. Overall median survival was 10 months. Among the pretreatment variables studied (age, sex, asbestos exposure, pathological type, chest pain and dyspnea et the time of diagnosis), the only one of prognostic value in the univariate analysis was the histological subtype: median survivals were l2, 7 and 4 months for the patients in the epithelial, mixed, and fibrosarcomatous groups, respectively (p = 0.0012). A multivariate analysis confirmed the independent predictive power of the histotype (p = 0.0022). A review of literature data concerning prognostic factors in Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma is presented.
