Appendiceal primary peritoneal surface malignancies are rare and include a broad spectrum of pathologies ranging from indolent disease to aggressive disease. As such, the data that drive the management of appendiceal peritoneal surface malignancies is generally not based on prospective clinical trial data, but rather consists of level 1 data based on retrospective studies and high-volume institutional experiences. Complete surgical debulking typically offers the best chance for long-term survival. This review highlights the landmark articles on which management of primary appendiceal peritoneal surface malignancies are based.
