Advanced-stage small cell carcinoma of the ovary in pregnancy: long-term survival after surgical debulking and multiagent chemotherapy

Advanced-stage small cell carcinoma of the ovary in pregnancy: long-term survival after surgical debulking and multiagent chemotherapy

Gynecologic Oncology 66(3): 531-534

We report the longest disease-free survival achieved in an advanced-stage small cell carcinoma of the ovary. The patient had a stage IIIc tumor diagnosed during pregnancy. She underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, omentectomy, and optimal tumor debulking. Following her immediate postoperative recovery, she was treated with a multiagent chemotherapy regimen with germ cell activity consisting of vinblastine, cisplatin, cyclophosphamide, bleomycin, doxorubicin, and etoposide. She is alive and without evidence of disease 5(1/2) years after diagnosis. This is the second reported case in pregnancy and the longest disease-free survivor of metastatic small cell ovarian carcinoma in the medical literature.
