As I don't have much context, I can only guess, but I have found a document with several pericardial illnesses and that might be a possibility since the word 'studding' means 'tapón'. Anyway, I leave the link to the document in which I found the term in case you find it useful.

Reference information:
"How is PMP diagnosed?
For many patients, PMP is discovered during an unrelated surgical procedure at which time the surgeon observes the mucinous tumors or “studding” on the peritoneum or abdominal organs. The following diagnostic tests are also commonly used in diagnosing PMP:
CT scan of the chest, abdomen and pelvis. Note that CT scans are not perfect pictures, and for some patients visible signs of tumor are not present on a CT scan. CT scans also require the judgment of a radiologist who can interpret the scan to identify the signs of PMP such as fluid buildup or tumor “studding”."
