Abstract Reported is a 59-year-old patient, who died of a peritoneal mesothelioma 36 years after contamination with thorotrast of the peritoneal cavity during cholangiography at cholecystectomy. Eleven years before death, the right kidney had to be removed for hydronephrosis due to fibrous stenosis of the pyeloureteral junction, because of thorium dioxide deposits.
