Abstract

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), whether primary or metastatic, rarely involves the ovary. All previously reported cases have been in adults. Herein we describe a 14-year-old girl who underwent extensive neurologic and musculoskeletal assessment because of symptoms of generalized muscle weakness and pain. She was found to have SCC that involved the ovary, with widespread metastases. This case illustrates the importance of eliciting a thorough history and evaluating the patient's symptoms. A review of the differential diagnosis of ovarian SCC is included. To our knowledge, our patient is the youngest to be described in the literature with SCC in the ovary.
