Squamous cell carcinoma arising in mature cystic teratoma of the ovary: A case series and review of the literature
Carcinoma, Squamous Cell
Cell Transformation, Neoplastic
Squamous carcinomas arising in mature cystic teratomas are commonly large ovarian tumors that occur in perimenopausal women and often present as an incidental pathologic finding. While the prognosis seems highly dependent on surgical stage, there is a lack of consensus in the literature regarding adjuvant treatment. Platinum-based chemotherapy with pelvic radiation may be a reasonable adjuvant therapy for early-stage disease.
