Good response of malignant mixed mullerian tumor of the ovary to paclitaxel and cisplatin chemotherapy
Survival of patients with advanced stage malignant mixed mullerian tumor of the ovary is poor and the best treatment remains unknown. A 62-year-old woman diagnosed with stage IIIC heterologous malignant mixed mullerian tumor of the ovary underwent optimal cytoreductive surgery followed by paclitaxel (135 mg/m2 over 24 hours) and cisplatin (75 mg/m2) every 4 weeks for 6 courses. The patient tolerated chemotherapy well, had complete clinical response and remained without disease for 21 months following diagnosis. Paclitaxel and cisplatin may be effective in malignant mixed mullerian tumors of the ovary.
