Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive tumor that originates from the lining cells (mesothelium) that cover the serosal surfaces of the pleural and peritoneal cavities, or more rarely the tunica vaginalis testis and the pericardium (Moore et al. 2008). Based on the stage of the disease at the time of diagnosis, mesothelioma may present as discrete multifocal nodules or as a diffuse confluent mass encasing the adjacent organs and/or obliterating the serosal cavity from which the tumor has originated.
