The normal medical background of the ovarian cancer patients stands out, nevertheless ovarian carcinoma presents a constant challenge. The increase of ovarian cancer among the world and the unchanged prognosis make this disease a field of great interest in clinical oncology. In an attempt to determine which factors are involved in epidemiology and which factors might affect survival, we have undertaken an analysis of all patients with ovarian carcinoma observed on our Institute from 1960 to 1973. A total of 265 ovarian cancer patients were analyzed. The descriptive epidemiology of ovarian carcinoma including age, marital status, parity, menstrual characteristics, menarche, menopause, medical history including mumps, previous pelvic irradiation, Peuitz-Jeghers syndrome, previous neoplasia, neoplastic family history is discussed. Furthermore, the patients were analyzed according to histological classification, histological grading, clinical classification, primary location of disease, diagnosis, survival according to histology, stage, grade, age. Our findings are discussed in comparison of the data of the literature.
