A case report of Hepatoid Carcinoma of the Ovary with peritoneal metastases treated with cytoreductive surgery/HIPEC



open access:
A case report of Hepatoid Carcinoma of the Ovary with peritoneal metastases treated with cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraoperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy without systemic adjuvant therapy

Table1
The timeline of diagnosis, treatment, and follow up of our patient.

Highlights

  • Hepatoid Ovarian Carcinoma (HCO) is rare diagnosis usually treated with debulking and adjuvant chemotherapy with a palliative intent.
  • Complete cytoreduction followed by HIPEC has been discussed as a potential curative option in absence of extraperitoneal disease.
  • The role of adjuvant chemotherapy is yet to be determined. In our case, a comparable disease-free survival was achieved without adjuvant therapies.
