Primary peritoneal clear cell carcinoma. A case report and literature review
We report a case of a 48-year-old Caucasian woman who was treated at the University General Hospital of Alicante. She consulted because of progressive abdominal pain over the last seven months, with the initial diagnosis of renal-ureteral colic. Ultrasound and computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis revealed a 25x15 cm, well-defined cystic lesion with papillary projections, centrally located in the abdomen. The radiology report suggested a primary ovarian tumor versus peritoneal implant as the first option. The patient underwent an exploratory laparotomy showing a large cystic mass located in the urinary bladder peri...

Primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the uterus: Excellent clinical response following a multimodal treatment approach
We present a case report of a patient with uterine primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET). The patient underwent surgical management followed by pelvic radiation and intravaginal brachytherapy. Following a stable interval, the patient was found to have new onset spinal, pulmonary, and adrenal metastatic disease. She was subsequently started on high dose carboplatin and etoposide. An interval reduction of her metastatic disease was observed after three cycles. We conclude that a multimodal approach, including platinum-based adjuvant chemotherapy with etoposide, can be effective in patients who present with residual or recur...

Trametinib response in heavily pretreated high-grade ovarian cancer: one step towards precision medicine
This report suggests that trametinib could be effective in high-grade serous ovarian cancer, although most of promising scientific data on this molecule have focused on low-grade ovarian cancer. Molecular profiling has gradually become part of care for patients affected by recurrent ovarian cancer, however further randomized studies are needed to prove its efficacy in everyday clinical practice.
