Abstract

Small cell carcinoma of the ovary, hypercalcemic type is a very rare, highly aggressive tumor associated with a poor prognosis. Diagnosis is typically challenging secondary to undifferentiated cells and the rarity of the tumor. We report our experience with a 5-year-old girl who presented with stage IV disease.
