A 2-year, 6-month-old boy with peritoneal pseudomyxoma had a hamartomatous Peutz-Jeghers-like polyp in the gallbladder. The morphological pattern of the polyp was very characteristic of what is usually considered an hamartomatous polyp. The patient presently reported has no clinical characteristics of Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. The peritoneal pseudomyxoma creates differential diagnostic problems with well-differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma.
