Platinum-based chemotherapy is the standard treatment for ovarian cancer, with response rates of 70-80%. Docetaxel has an increasing role as salvage therapy in patients with platinum-refractory ovarian cancer. In this report, we present the case of a patient with platinum-refractory ovarian cancer who achieved a long-term complete remission with docetaxel therapy. Two years after com­pletion of chemotherapy with docetaxel, she continues to have no evidence of disease.
