Small Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary: Report of a Case with Unusual and Aggressive Presentation
Small cell carcinoma of the ovary is an aggressive malignant tumor with no standard treatment. Despite surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, this tumor has a poor prognosis with rapid progression. The authors report a case of small cell carcinoma of the ovary in a 37-year-old woman who presented twice with an acute abdomen and unstable hemodynamics which led to two urgent laparatomies. The patient died two months after her diagnosis of small cell carcinoma of the ovary and one course of chemotherapy.
