Gelatinous disease of the peritoneum or pseudo-peritoneal mixing is a very rare condition. Its origin is mainly appendicular (70 - 80%) and not only ovarian but other. Sporadic causes were described in the literature we add an observation of a patient who presents a gelatinous ascites whose etiology found is an adenocarcinoma cardia which to our knowledge has not been reported.
