    Abstract

    The number of cases of malignant pleural mesothelioma diagnosed each year is increasing and it is expected to increase at least until the year 2010. The diagnosis of this disease is often difficult. There is no current standard of care for pleural mesothelioma and only a few trials using the combination of surgery and adjuvant therapies appear to have demonstrated any significant impact on the expected course of the disease. Newer diagnostic and treatment techniques are needed to improve survival in these patients with MPM. This chapter discussed the role of one of the adjuvant treatments, photodynamic therapy, in the management of mesothelioma.
