Abstract

Introduction:

Mucinous ovarian carcinomas are less common than serous and endometriod type, and are more frequently confined to the ovary at the time of diagnosis. But primary signet ring cell mucinous carcinomas of the ovary are extremely rare.

Case Presentation:

A 40 yr old patient presented with extremely rare primary signet cell mucinous carcinoma of ovary. She presented with abdominal distension and frequency of urination for one month. She was evaluated and CECT whole abdomen was s/o large left ovarian mass. All the tumor markers were with in normal range. Laparotomy frozen section of left adnexal mass was done and was reported as malignant with sheets of signet ring cells seen. Hence complete staging laparotomy including TAH with RSO with bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection with total omentectomy with para aortic lymph node dissection. Final histopathology with IHC markers were S/O primary signet ring cell carcinoma of ovary with no extracapsular invasion, no lymph nodal involvement & no metastatic spread.

Conclusion:

We present a very rare case of primary signet ring cell of ovary, confined to ovary itself. On literature review only 14 cases have been reported and of them very few are malignant.
