Primary angiosarcoma of the ovary: A case report of stage I disease
Adjuvant chemotherapy; Angiosarcoma; MAID chemotherapy; Ovarian cancer
Background. There are 20 documented cases of primary ovarian angiosarcoma. Most patients present with metastatic disease and respond poorly to chemotherapy. There is little information available to counsel early-staged patients on the need for or efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy. Case. We present a case of Stage Ic primary ovarian angiosarcoma treated with 3 cycles of adjuvant MAID chemotherapy. The patient is without evidence of disease 10 months post-operatively. Conclusion. A review of the literature indicates a potential role for MAID chemotherapy in the treatment of ovarian angiosarcomas. Detection of Stage I disease appears to confer a better prognosis regardless of the utilization of adjuvant chemotherapy. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
