We report the case of a 41-year-old man with a history of long time HBV-related liver disease presenting abdominal pain, weight loss and dyspepsia for 3 months. He underwent an US scan which showed middle-grade ascites and pleural effusion associated with splenomegaly. A subsequent C.E CT scan of the abdomen revealed several areas of peritoneum and omentum thickening, compatible with carcinosis, associated with multiple mediastinal and abdominal lymphadenopathies.
