Background & objective: Ovarian cancer is the fifth most common cancer affecting women today. The aim of this retrospective study was to present the epidemiological, pathological, clinical characteristics of epithelial ovarian cancer patients treated at Clinical Oncology and Nuclear Medicine Department, Mansoura University Hospitals in the period between January 2009 and December 2013, with evaluation of progression free survival (PFS) overall survival (OS) and prognostic factors. Patients & methods: This is a retrospective study of epithelial ovarian carcinoma women treated at Clinical Oncology and Nuclear Medicine Department, Mansoura University Hospitals (in the period between January 2009 and December 2013). Data were analyzed after being collected from the patients' medical records. Clinical abstract sheets for all cases were designed. Results: The median age was 55 years (19 – 80 years), 58 patients (39.2%) were ECOG performance status (PS) 1, whereas, 50 patients (33.8%) were PS 0 at presentation. Ninety five patients (64.2%) were postmenopausal at presentation, serous cystadenocarcinoma was the predominant histopathologic type found in 94 patients (63.5%), followed by Endometrioid type (17.5%), 79 patients (53.4%) had stage III disease and 33 patients (22.3%) had stage IV disease. The majority of patients (99 patients 66.9%) had grade III tumors, 140 patients (94.6%) in the study underwent surgical treatment, optimal debulking was done in 85 patients (60.7%), while, suboptimal debulking was done in 55 patients (39.3%), the median overall survival was 49 months, while the median progression free survival was 18 months. Conclusion: the median age was 55 years old, serous carcinoma was the predominant histopathological type. Stage III and IV predominated. Most patients underwent initially surgery followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. The median overall survival & PFS were 49 & 18 months, respectively. Age, tumor histopathology, stage, grade and tumor residue after debulking surgery were significant independent prognostic factors for epithelial ovarian cancer.
