Molecular analysis of a rare case of low-grade primary peritoneal serous carcinoma in a male

Rare Tumors. 2020 Dec 9:12:2036361320979219. doi: 10.1177/2036361320979219. eCollection 2020.


Primary peritoneal serous carcinomas (PPSC) are exceedingly rare in male patients. Only a few cases were reported, and mostly with the limited immunophenotypical characterization. No molecular analysis of PPSC in males has been previously performed. We here describe another case of PPSC in a male patient. A comprehensive molecular analysis of the tumor revealed SF3B1 gene mutation as a possible driver.

Keywords: Low-grade primary peritoneal serous carcinoma; male; molecular analysis.
