A case of breast cancer treated with chemotherapy after resection of giant ovarian metastasis


, : A case of breast cancer treated with chemotherapy after resection of giant ovarian metastasis. Gan to Kagaku Ryoho. Cancer & ChemoTherapy 41(5): 633-635

A 49-year-old female patient presented with lower abdominal pain and constipation. Computed tomography revealed left breast cancer with lymph node metastases, a peritoneal metastasis, bilateral hydronephrosis, and ovarian metastasis. The giant ovarian metastasis occupied the pelvic cavity and was responsible for her symptoms of digestive obstruction. Both ovaries were resected as a palliative measure. Three cycles of weekly paclitaxel were successfully administered, leading to the disappearance of malignant ascites. Hence, reduction surgery for ovarian metastasis in the treatment of breast cancer increased the effectiveness of the chemotherapy by improving the patient's general condition.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to evaluate whether glycosylated granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) ( lenograstim) offers a benefit over nonglycosylated G-CSF (filgrastim) in clinically relevant end points after high-dose chemotherapy...
