Abstract:

Low grade ovarian serous carcinomas (LGSC) are rare tumors, representing only a small part of all ovarian carcinomas. The study included six LGSC cases for which we followed the clinical-epidemiological and morphological parameters depending on the tumoral stages. The tumors corresponded to stage I in four cases, in one case to stage II and in another case to stage III. The majority of the analyzed histopathological parameters were present in all tumoral stages. The accuracy of the diagnostic and the correct staging of the LGSC affected patients is very important, because the grade and stage of the serous ovarian tumors impose the therapy and the prognosis.
