Abstract
Primary retroperitoneal serous carcinoma is extremely rare tumor. It is histologically identical to ovarian serous papillary carcinoma but without any evidence of ovaries, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix or abdominal origin. Histogenesis of this neoplasm remains uncertain. Ectopic ovarian tissue or coelomic metaplasia of retroperitoneal mesothelium has been proposed as its origin. We experienced a case of primary retroperitoneal serous carcinoma in an 53-year-old woman. Therefore, we present this case with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Primary retroperitoneal serous carcinoma, Ovarian neoplasm
