CORCUERA FRUTOS, I. Díaz de et al. A case of hypercalcemic small cell ovary cancer in a young woman. Oncología (Barc.) [online]. 2007, vol.30, n.2, pp.48-52. ISSN 0378-4835.
The hypercalcemic ovarian small cell carcinoma is a very rare aggressive tumor affecting young women. Hypercalcemia is among its clinical features. Prognosis is poor despite aggressive treatment, but combined treatment seems to increase survival in a small subset of patients. We report a case of a woman diagnosed of hypercalcemic ovary small cell cancer, her clinical evolution and the treatment she received.
