Clear cell carcinoma (CCC) of the ovary has clinical and pathological features distinct from those of other ovarian carcinomas. Most reports of CCC in the literature consist of relatively small numbers of cases. Recently, an international clinical trial for CCC was conducted by the Japan Gynecologic Oncology Group (JGOG) and 652 cases were collected and underwent central pathological review. This Atlas represents the results of that review, and comprises both typical and unusual pathological features.
