- A relatively rare tumour of a coelomic surface in an old rat, a bilateral papillary mesothelioma, is described. The histology is considered in detail and the diagnosis discussed in relation to similar tumours described in man. Its similarity to a lesion seen in the uterus of an oestrogen-treated dog is noted.
