Primary ovarian transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) is extremely rare type of tumor and resembles transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. Primary ovarian TCC has been classified as a different subtype from malignant Brenner tumor for it's histologic and clinical characteristics. It usually presents at an advanced stage .Though more aggressive than malignant Brenner tumor, it shows more favorable prognosis because of better response to the chemotherapy than other epithelial ovarian carcinomas. We experienced a case of primary ovarian transitional cell carcinoma in a premenopausal woman who underwent staging operation and chemotherapeutic treatment, and herein report the case with a brief review of related literatures.
