Small cell carcinoma of the ovary is a rare, highly aggressive, poorly differentiated ovarian neoplasm, often associated with paraneoplastic hypercalcemia. It is usually diagnosed in childhood or young adulthood at an advanced stage and presents with abdominal or pelvic mass or, rarely, symptoms related to hypercalcemia. Occasional familial cases have been reported.
