Abstract

The most common histological type of epithelial ovarian carcinoma is high grade serous carcinoma. Immunohistochemistry analysis with p53 helps to differentiate high grade serous carcinomas from low grade serous carcinomas and the other type I histologies. However in recent years, there has been much speculation about variants of HGSC. These are characterized by high-grade ovarian carcinoma with unusual morphologies, including the Solid, Pseudo-Endometrioid and Transitional cell carcinoma-like (SET) pattern, exhibiting typical p53 molecular aberration of type II carcinoma and this transformation can also be extended to mucinous feature. Here in we report a case of advanced high grade epithelial ovarian carcinoma with a mucinous differentiation in a 33 year old multiparous, premenopausal lady.
