CLINICAL FEATURES AND NATURAL HISTORY 25 Mesothelioma of peritoneum Throughout all stages of the disease mesothelioma of the peritoneum does not have any particular feature which distinguishes it from other diffusely spreading intra-abdominal tumours. The presenting symptoms of mesothelioma of the peritoneum are even less specific than those of the pleural tumour. The initial symptom is usually a dull pain in the abdomen followed by abdominal swelling, loss of appetite and weight loss. On examination large amounts of ascitic fluid may be present.

Iv) Unknown In approximately 10-15% of cases of mesothelioma there is no known contact with mineral fibres or with any other potential carcinogenic agent. There is no evidence to suggest that cigarette smoking has any influence on the development of mesothelioma. (d) Epidemiology (i) Geographical distribution As there is such a close correlation between the exposure to certain mineral fibres and the development of mesotheliomas, the tumour is most commonly found where these fibres are mined or used in manufacturing processes, in installations and during demolition processes.
