Ovarian clear cell carcinoma, outcomes by stage: The MSK experience
Adenocarcinoma, Clear Cell
OCCC often presents in early stage. Women with stage IA OCCC have excellent prognosis, and future studies should explore whether they benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy. Women with IC OCCC need further staging clarification, as surgical rupture alone affords better prognosis than surface involvement and/or positive cytology. Women with advanced OCCC have poor survival and are often chemotherapy resistant/refractory. New treatment paradigms are needed.
