tubulopapillary mesothelial hyperplasia

Friday 2 July 2010

Mesothelial surface injury is often followed by the vascular events of inflammation and shortly thereafter the exfoliation of mesothelial cells.

Persistence of this injury ultimately leads to mesothelial hyperplasia.

The separation of mesothelial hyperplasia from early malignant mesothelioma and adenocarcinoma remains one of the most difficult problems in histopathology.

Differential diagnosis

- papillary carcinoma is presented. (J GYNECOL SURG 21:25)
