    ABSTRACT: Ovarian metastases from renal cell carcinoma (RCC) are very rare, with only 23 cases reported in the literature. We report a case of 54-year-old women who developed bilateral ovarian metastasis 39 months after diagnosis of clear cell carcinoma. Total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was carried out. Subsequently she was treated with sunitinib and her disease stabilized. She is still alive four years after diagnosis of the renal primary, and disease has stabilized on sunitinib. We conclude that, although rare, the possibility of metastatic RCC should be considered in the differential diagnosis of clear cell tumors of the ovary. Due to therapeutic and prognostic implications, it is very important to differentiate if the tumor is a primary ovarian tumor or a metastasis from a renal cell carcinoma. Early diagnosis of this rare metastatic tumor results in prompt treatment and prolonged patient survival.

    ABSTRACT: To present an extremely rare case of a primary carcinoid tumor arising in a mature cystic teratoma of the ovary. Malignant transformation of mature cystic teratoma is an uncommon complication occuring in approximately 1-3% of patients with mature cystic teratoma. A 54-year-old woman presented with abdominal swelling and abnormal uterine bleeding. Physical examination revealed a smooth, non-painful, 8-9 cm diameter mass in the right anterior pelvis which was diagnosed histologically as carcinoid tumor arising in a mature cystic teratoma. The patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and was scheduled for surveillance CT of the abdomen and pelvis at 3-monthly intervals. This case adds to the rare reports in the literature of a carcinoid of low malignant potential occurring in a mature cystic teratoma. The treatment for early-stage ovarian carcinoid tumors confined to one ovary is surgery alone and excellent outcomes can be expected in these cases.
