Abstract

Malignant pleural mesothelioma is a rare neoplasm which arises from pleural surface. Most patients present with locally advanced or metastatic disease in which the overall outcome is poor. We report a case of a female with the history of early stage tongue cancer cured 20 years previously with surgery and radiotherapy who presented with chest pain and was found to have metastatic malignant pleural mesothelioma. The presentation, diagnostic work up, and management of this interesting case is discussed and the current literature pertaining to mesothelioma is reviewed.
