Abstract
One hundred and twenty one cases of ovarian
malignancy were reviewed over a period of
13 years from 1968 to 1980. Of these, 5
cases (4. 1%) were classified as clear cell carcinoma.
In 1981 one additional case of clear cell
carcinoma was uncovered. The mean age of the 6
patients was 58 years, with a range from 46 to 75
years. Presenting symptoms were abdominal pain
or mass and/or distention. One case was associated
with salpingeal endometriosis and ovarian
endometriosis with transition to clear cell carcinoma.
The striking features were clear cells (6
cases) and hobinail cells (4 cases), but papillary
structure (4 cases) and parvilocular cystoma-like
area 0 case) were also noted. Patients with
solid tumor and in advanced stage seemed to
have a worse prognosis than those with partly cystic and partly solid tumor and in less advanced
stage.
Histogenesis of clear cell carcinoma was studied
and discussed in detail: origin from the
ovarian surface epithelium seems to be the most
frequent tissue of origin but rarely the tumor
originate from epithelium of endometriostic
cyst.
