Peritoneal carcinomatosis is intraperitoneal spread of gastrointestinal and gynaecological cancers. Cytoreductive surgeries and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy offers survival benefits in these cases. Spread of peritoneal carcinomatosis to thorax pose challenges to surgeon and anaesthesiologist. Haemodynamic, temperature and coagulopathy monitoring as well as intraoperative airway pressure, pre- and postoperative pulmonary function test monitoring is required in these cases where diaphragm excision is done and intraoperative intra peritoneal as well as pleural chemotherapy is given. We are reporting a case of pseudomyxoma peritonei involving the abdomen and left side of pleura and lung, posted for cytoreductive surgery and hyperthemic chemotherapy to abdomen and thorax, i.e., hyperthemic intraoperative thoraco-abdominal chemotherapy.
