Pseudomyxoma pleurii is an unusual clinical syndrome caused by trans-diaphragmatic spread of pseudomyxoma peritonei due to mucinous adenocarcinoma of the appendix. The disease is highly lethal. We present one such patient who had underwent renal transplant and on immunosuppression therapy developed pseudomyxoma pleurii. Cytoreduction surgery and hyperthermic chemo perfusion were done which is the standard treatment for these patients which has an impact on the overall survival and disease free survival.
