Abstract. Katabuchi H, Honda R, Tajima T, Ohtake H, Kageshita T, Ono T, Okamura H. Clear cell sarcoma arising in the retroperitoneum.

Clear cell sarcoma is a rare soft-tissue neoplasm, arising most commonly in the tendons and aponeuroses of young adults. We report here the first female case of clear cell sarcoma arising in the retroperitoneum with clinical features similar to those of malignant ovarian tumors. Aspects of clinical presentation, histopathologic evaluation, and treatment are described.
