Abstract

Tumors of the peritoneum, the omentum and the subperitoneal spaces originate from the various tissues that constitute these structures: coelomic epithelium, mesothelium, fibrous connective tissue, adipose tissue, muscular tissue, hematic vessels, lymphatic tissue, nerves, and embryonal tissue.
