Malignant Mesothelioma With Fungating Masses And Multiple Sites Involvement
Published 2017 · Medicine
Malignant mesothelioma (MM) is a rare tumor associated with asbestos exposure. It typically presents as thickening or nodularity of the pleura, although it can also originate from other sites consisting of mesothelia and have manifestations other than thickening or nodularity. Several studies have implied that these different manifestations are associated with a different tumor biology. We report the case of a 54‐year‐old man with multiple fungating masses diagnosed as MM on histological examination.
