Key Clinical Message:
Paclitaxel–carboplatin therapy (TC) usually controls primary peritoneal serous carcinoma (PPSC) but not recurrent disease. In this case, PPSC recurred after three courses of TC, responded dramatically to additional autologous formalin-fixed tumor vaccine (AFTV), and resulted in prolonged, progression-free survival without visible lesions detected by positron emission tomography–computed tomography.
