Title
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) arising in the ovary : report of a case diagnosed at an early stage and review of the literature
Author
Abstract
Background: Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare sarcoma tumor affecting mainly young adult males. It rarely has an ovarian involvement. Case: A 29-year-old woman presented to her gynecologist for amenorrhoea. The laboratory results demonstrated a menopausal status and the ultrasound revealed a large mass of the right ovary. The right ovary was completely removed by laparoscopy. Pathology, cytology and immunochemistry revealed a DSRCT. In January 2009 a left salpingo-oophorectomy and a right salpingectomy were performed via laparoscopy. After 35 months from diagnosis there was no clinical evidence of disease recurrence. Conclusion: DSRCT is a rare ovarian tumor in adolescence with a general poor outcome. Every ovarian mass regardless of age should be approached with caution.
