Description A usually malignant and aggressive neoplasm of the mesothelium which is often associated with exposure to asbestos.|A tumor derived from mesothelial tissue (peritoneum, pleura, pericardium). It appears as broad sheets of cells, with some regions containing spindle-shaped, sarcoma-like cells and other regions showing adenomatous patterns. Pleural mesotheliomas have been linked to exposure to asbestos. (Dorland, 27th ed) (Experimental Factor Ontology, EFO_0000588)
