Abstract
Ovarian transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) resembles transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder. As a very rare type of tumor, it accounts for less than 2% of the total incidence of ovarian cancer. 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 ovarian TCC in a menopausal woman with a chief complaint of palpable pelvic mass, who underwent staging operation and platinum based (carboplatin-cyclophosphamide) chemotherapeutic treatment, and herein report the case with a brief review of related literatures.
Key Words: Transitional cell carcinoma, Malignant brenner tumor, Ovary
