A 64-year-old was diagnosed with a stage laII clear cell adenocarcinoma of the ovary in 1986. Initial chemotherapy was with Cisplatinum, Cytoxan, and Adriamycin. A pelvic recurrence developed in 1991 which failed to respond to Carboplatin therapy, and progression of disease with retroperitoneal nodal and choroidal metastases was noted in 1992. Debulking of retroperitoneal disease along with radiotherapy and seventeen cycles of Taxol chemotherapy resulted in a sustained clinical remission for three years until December 1995 when a right pelvic recurrence was noted. The patient underwent resection of disease again and was restarted on Taxol which was continued for six cycles until increasing serum CA-125 and recurrent pelvic disease were noted.
