Ovarian cancer presents the highest mortality rate of all gynecological pathologies, since it is only diagnosed in an advanced stadium, when first symptoms appear. The study case represents a follow-up cytology, after a total hysterectomy for an undifferentiated ovary carcinoma. The cytological evaluation suggested an Adenocarcinoma, while the histological diagnosis of the nodular lesion revealed a relapse of Papillary Serous Ovarian Carcinoma. Performing the histological examination, in this and other cases, is a fundamental piece for the confirmation of the cytological diagnosis as well as for the differential diagnosis.
