Abstract(s)After liver metastases, Peritoneal Carcinomatosis (PC) is the second most frequent cause of death in patients with Co-lorectal Cancer (CRC), although the precise incidence of Colorectal Cancer Peritoneal Carcinomatosis is not known, as the majority of the diagnostic studies cannot detect the disease in its initial stages, nowadays, the diagnosis of peritoneal carcinomatosis remains a challenge. The molecular biology of PC is only just beginning to be understood, future knowledge will permit not only identify novel strategies for PC prevention, but also contribute to therapeutic advances, through the development of molecular targeted therapies. The authors performed a literature revision about the Molecu-lar Biology, Diagnosis and Management of Colorectal Cancer Peritoneal carcinomatosis.
