Primary serous papillary carcinoma of the peritoneum is a rare neoplasm. It is characterized by peritoneal carcinomatosis, asertes and identical histology to ovarian serous papillary carcinoma, but wrth unaffected or only superficially affected ovaries. The main differential diagnoses are secondary peritoneal carcinomatosis, peritoneal tuberculosis, malignant peritoneal mesothelioma and peritoneal lymphomatosis. The computer tomography and CA 125 are the main diagnostic tools, but the histology is essential. In this report, we present a case of a 57 years old woman with this neoplasm, metastazised to colon, uterus and ovaries. She was treated with optimal cytoreduction and chemotherapy.
