Abstract

Although peritoneal carcinomatosis is the most common entity involving the peritoneum diffusely, a vast array of unusual diseases may affect the peritoneal surfaces. These entities can be further categorized into infectious, neoplastic, and miscellaneous conditions. Crosssectional imaging, including computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are excellent modalities for further characterization of these unusual diseases. For some of these conditions, imaging-specific diagnosis is achievable. For others, the diagnosis can be favored when clinical and/or cross-sectional imaging features coexist. © 2011 Canadian Association of Radiologists. All rights reserved.
