Abstract Share this page

Abstract Primary carcinoid tumor of the ovary is an extremely rare neoplasm, accounting for less than 0.1 \% of all ovarian neoplasms. We report a case of a 79-year-old woman with locally advanced ovarian carcinoid presenting as acute abdomen. At laparotomy, a large mass appeared in the pelvis, with maximum size of 18 cm, growing from the left ovary with infiltration of the left Fallopian tube and compression of the small bowel and the sigmoid tract. A bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed, and the tumor mass was completely removed. Post-operative treatments were not considered due to the absence of data in literature to support adjuvant treatments. Ten years after surgery the patient remains well without evidence of recurrence. Older age should not be considered an absolute contraindication for aggressive surgery, if this represents the best chance of cure. An aggressive cytoreductive surgery remains the best treatment for advanced or locally advanced primary ovarian carcinoid.
