RGD DISEASE ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

RGD uses the Human Disease Ontology (DO, https://disease-ontology.org/) for disease curation across species. RGD automatically downloads each new release of the ontology on a monthly basis. Some additional terms which are required for RGD's curation purposes but are not currently covered in the official version of DO have been added. As corresponding terms are added to DO, these custom terms are retired and the DO terms substituted in existing annotations and subsequently used for curation.

Definition:This neoplastic disease most often develops when other abdominal epithelial tumors spread to the peritoneum, leading to multiple new tumors on the surface of this membrane. Peritoneal carcinomatosis generally means that abdominal cancer is in an advanced stage. There are also very rare cases of primary peritoneal carcinomatosis, which begins in the peritoneum itself.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: Carcinomatosis of peritoneum
 xref: PMID:28439450
