C R Choi, J J Park, J O Kang, Y H So, Y H Rho, C W Lee
Primary trabecular carcinoid tumor of the ovary is an very rare ovarian tumor, behaving like a tumor of low malignant potential. It mostly occurs in women between 20 and 50 years of age and constitutes less than 1 % of all carcinoid tumors. Ovarian carcinoid tumor is frequent coexistence of mature or immature teratoid components. Ovarian carcinoids, without other teratomatous components, are solid, grey-yellow tumors, usually well-encapsuled and slightly lobulated. When other teratomatous components coexist, cystic and semicystic foci are seen. In the younger patient, the treatment is unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, while in the postmenopausal patient bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and hysterectomy is the treatment of choice. Chemotherapy or radiotherapy was not needful. Authors have experienced a case of primary trabecular carcinoid tumor of the ovary in a 17 year-old woman, and report with a brief literature review.
