Introduction: Psammocarcinoma is a rare form of epithelial serous ovarian carcinoma characterized by extensive formation of psammoma bodies, invasion of ovarian stroma, peritoneum or intraperitoneal viscera, and moderate cytological atypia. These tumors represent a real problem of the diagnostic, and the role of chemotherapy is not yet clearly demonstrated.

Case presentation: We herein report a case of psammocarcinoma of ovary with peritoneal carcinosis in a forty year old Moroccan female. The patient underwent optimal surgical debulking and nine courses of chemotherapy with carboplatinum and paclitaxel with a complete response. The prognosis for this type of ovarian cancer is unclear, but it appears to be better than other forms of epithelial ovarian cancer.

Conclusion: The psammocarcinome is a rare entity, majority of patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage. The role of chemotherapy is poorly defined; some authors have their patients treated by neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy.

We currently lack evidence of increasing the benefits that can bring chemotherapy in the management of advanced ovarian psammocarcinomas. Only trials in wide yard can answer this question.
