Primary Peritoneal Anaplastic Giant Cell Carcinoma: Case Report of an Unusual and Highly Malignant Mullerian Neoplasm (Case Study)

Primary peritoneal carcinoma (PPC) is a rare tumor and tends to occur in elderly women. (1) Like its ovarian counterpart, the tumor often presents with abdominal distention, pain, and pressure.
