NCI Definition: A benign, borderline, or malignant epithelial tumor of the ovary that is characterized by a predominance of clear and hobnail cells. [1]

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

Most Commonly Altered Genes in Ovarian Clear Cell Tumor

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