ABSTRACT: A 52-year-old man was admitted to our hospital in June 2008 presenting abnormal tumor lesions along the left pleura on chest X-ray. The needle-biopsied specimen of the left pleura proved the biphasic type of malignant mesothelioma. However, he complained of acute abdominal pain 7 days after the diagnosis. Chest X-ray revealed free air below the right diaphragm. Emergency surgery revealed a 4-cm perforating jejunal tumor with peritonitis. Histopathology of the resected jejunum demonstrated a metastatic tumor of malignant pleural mesothelioma. This is the first reported case of malignant pleural mesothelioma presenting as an acute surgical abdomen due to jejunal metastasis with perforation.
