Abstract

Gliomatosis peritonei a very rare entity that occurs almost exclusively in patients with ovarian teratoma is characterized by benign glial implants on the peritoneal surface of the abdomen. The implants have been diagnosed at second-look laparotomy, or in rare case during first surgery. Glial tissues are derived from maturation of teratoma tissue that has implanted in the peritoneum or glial differentiation of peritoneal stem cells. In this study the case of 24-years-old women, in whom giomatosis peritonei was diagnosed 5 months after initial surgery for ovary immature teratoma and literature review have been presented.
