Abstract

The different types of surface epithelial tumors of ovary can show considerable overlap in the morphological features and hence pose diagnostic challenge for the pathologist. It is important to accurately type these tumors, because of differences in their therapeutic management. We present a case of a 58 year old female, diagnosed with high grade serous adenocarcinoma ovary by a peripheral hospital, which on review was classified as clear cell carcinoma. We describe the role of immunohistochemistry in establishing the correct diagnosis. This article also highlights the lack of uniformity and consensus to diagnose clear cell carcinoma ovary. We also emphasize on its precise diagnosis, as it has poorer prognosis and does not respond well to conventional therapy.
