Primary malignant mesothelioma of the diaphragm with liver i
Malignant mesothelioma is a malignant tumor with poor prognosis, which usually originates in the pleura, peritoneum, and pericardial cavity. Mesotheliomas that originate from the diaphragm are very rare. Here, we report a case of primary malignant mesothelioma of the diaphragm with liver invasion.

A 66-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of a “liver space-occupying lesion,” without any special clinical symptoms. Imaging examinations suggested a cystic-solid mixed lesion in the right lobe of the liver. The tumor was diagnosed as epithelioid mesothelioma of the diaphragm with liver invasion.

The patient underwent abdominal surgery in our hospital to remove the diaphragmatic mass, liver mass, and part of the diaphragm and postoperative course was uneventful.
