Mucinous ovarian adenocarcinoma in the premenarchal patient: A case presentation
Epithelial ovarian malignancies are uncommon prior to the menarche. Mucinous cystadenocarcinomas are rare in children and tend to present with advanced disease. A case is described of malignant mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the ovary occurring in a premenarchal girl resulting in intestinal obstruction. There was a fatal outcome despite multimodal therapy, which included ablative surgery. Familial recurrence of site-specific ovarian cancer requires counselling and follow-up of the female siblings of children with aggressive tumors.
