Described by Max Walthard, Swiss gynaecologist.[1]
Nests of cells occasionally seen in the female pelvic peritoneum, most commonly in the mesovarium, mesosalpinx and ovarian hilus, and possibly in the cervical and vaginal.[2] Thought to represent transitional cell metaplasia of mesothelial cells, explaining its occurence mainly on the serosal (peritoneal) surface.
