Abstract

The case of a metastasizing malignant Brenner tumor of the ovary in a 67-year-old patient is presented. Following a subtotal operation (hysterectomy with both adnexa and omentectomy), a complete remission of 7 month duration was obtained by means of a combined chemotherapy. By changing the therapy over to cisplatinum, one succeeded up to now in controlling the local recurrence, quickly developing after that. The therapeutic proceedings in cases of such rare tumors are discussed.
