Overview

NCI Definition: A rare carcinoma that arises from the peritoneum and resembles the malignant surface epithelial-stromal tumors that arise from the ovary. Serous adenocarcinoma is the most common histologic variant. It affects women almost exclusively. The diagnosis of primary peritoneal carcinoma can be made only if both ovaries are not involved by tumor, or, if the ovaries are involved, the tumor is confined to the ovarian surface without invasion of the ovarian stroma and the peritoneal involvement is greater than the ovarian surface involvement. [1]

Primary peritoneal carcinomas most frequently harbor alterations in TP53, KRAS, EPHB1, BRCA2, and BCOR [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma

TP53 Mutation, TP53 c.217-c.1178 Missense, TP53 Missense, TP53fs, and TP53 Exon 8 Mutation are the most common alterations in primary peritoneal carcinoma [2].
