Overview

NCI Definition: An invasive malignant neoplasm that arises from the ovary and is characterized by a predominance of clear and hobnail malignant epithelial cells. [1]

Malignant ovarian clear cell tumors most frequently harbor alterations in PIK3CA, ARID1A, TP53, KRAS, and PTEN [2].

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Malignant Ovarian Clear Cell Tumor

PIK3CA Mutation, ARID1fs, ARID1A Mutation, ARID1A Nonsense, and PIK3CA Codon 1047 Missense are the most common alterations in malignant ovarian clear cell tumor [2].
