Abstract: A case of trabecular carcinoid originating in the left overy is presented. Clinically, no signs of carcinoid syndrome were noted. Various examinations including X-ray and CT, especially of gastrointestinal tracts and pelvic organs, revealed that the tumor mass is originated from the left ovary. Histologically, the resected tumor exhibited trabecular pattern of tumor cells, which contained numerous argentaffin and argyrophic granules. Immunostaining of NSE and calcitonin was strongly demonstrated in tumor cells. On ultrastructural examination, tumor cells had uniformly round shape granules, which were interpreted as neurosecretory granules. These findings clearly indicate that this neoplasm is primary trabecular carcinoid of the ovary.
