Primary ovarian carcinoids are very rare tumors that belong to the germ cell family of ovarian malignancies. They account for less than 1% of all carcinoid tumors and for less than 0.1% of all ovarian neoplasms. Recurrences are even rarer, with only few cases reported in the literature. Strumal carcinoid has recently been recognized as an extremely rare distinct entity. We report on a patient with bilateral mature cystic teratoma with millimetric foci of ovarian strumal carcinoid who developed lymph node para aortic metastasis after 30 years from primary diagnosis. Our case is thus far the second report of a metastatic strumal carcinoid and the first one in which strumal carcinoid occurred bilaterally and was also metastatic.

Abstract

Primary ovarian carcinoids are very rare tumors that belong to the germ cell family of ovarian malignancies. They account for less than 1% of all carcinoid tumors and for less than 0.1% of all ovarian neoplasms. Recurrences are even rarer, with only few cases reported in the literature. Strumal carcinoid has recently been recognized as an extremely rare distinct entity. We report on a patient with bilateral mature cystic teratoma with millimetric foci of ovarian strumal carcinoid who developed lymph node para aortic metastasis after 30 years from primary diagnosis. Our case is thus far the second report of a metastatic strumal carcinoid and the first one in which strumal carcinoid occurred bilaterally and was also metastatic.
