Abstract | Full Text

Os tumores endometrioides malignos ovarianos são neoplasias epiteliais raras em pacientes jovens. Enquanto os carcinomas endometrioides ovarianos acometem mulheres na quinta e na sexta décadas de vida, os tumores borderline acometem mulheres em uma faixa etária mais ampla (de 22 a 77 anos). Descreveremos a seguir um caso raro de tumor endometrioide borderline ocorrendo em paciente de 16 anos. Desde que tumores do saco vitelino (TSV) e de Sertoli-Leydig (TCSL) podem mimetizar morfologicamente tumor endometrioide, o uso da imuno-histoquímica, além dos aspectos morfológicos, foi fundamental para estabelecer o diagnóstico diferencial entre essas condições.<br>Malignant endometrioid ovarian tumors are rare epithelial neoplasias among young patients. Whereas endometrioid ovarian carcinomas are more common among women in their fifth and sixth decades of life, borderline endometrioid tumors affect 22 to 77 year-old women. The present study reports a rare case of borderline endometrioid tumor in a 16 year-old patient. Since yolk sac and Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor may morphologically mimic endometrioid tumor, both the use of immunohistochemistry and morphological aspects were essential to establish the differential diagnosis.
