Primary peritoneal mesothelioma is a rare neoplasm which carries a dismal prognosis. These highly aggressive tumors arise from mesothelial cells lining the peritoneum and are rapidly fatal. The neoplasm is typically associated with crocidolite asbestos exposure. We present the case of a 75-year-old man with primary peritoneal mesothelioma, with invasion into the right hepatic lobe. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
