We reviewed the clinical records of 32 patients with granulosa cell tumor of the ovary treated at the Wisconsin Clinical Cancer Center (WCCC) between 1970 and 1982. Eleven of these patients were treated with one or more chemotherapeutic regimens, yielding a total of 22 treatment trials. Objective response was observed in 7 of 17 evaluable treatment trials (41%). The response to chemotherapy could not be assessed in five treatment trials due to the concomitant administration of radiotherapy. We conclude that granulosa cell tumor of the ovary is responsive to chemotherapy. However, the optimal chemotherapeutic regimen for this rare neoplasm remains to be established on the basis of prospective clinical trials.
