Introduction: Ovarian Clear cell carcinoma (OCCC) represents 5-10% of all primary ovarian carcinoma and the median incidence is 23% of all ovarian carcinoma at Rebagliati Hospital, in Peru. It is higher than those reported worldwide. Methods: Medical records of patients with OCCC were retrospectively reviewed between 2013 and 2016. Descriptive tabulations of the clinical and pathological characteristics of patients. DFS curves were reviewed by the Kaplan-Meier method. The comparisons according to the clinical characteristics were reviewed by the Logrank or Breslow test. Results: 33 patients were included. The median follow-up was 1.4 years (0.9-1.9 y). 75.8% were older than 45 years, 72.7% underwent optimal surgery. 46.4% had capsule rupture, 9.4% reported lymphovascular tumor emboly, 34.2% necrosis, 60.6% endometriosis and 51.5% peritumoral lymphocytes. 75% of cases presented residual disease less than 1 cm. 60.6% had FIGO I, 9.1% II, 18.2% III and 12.1% IV. 58.5% received adjuvancy with Carboplatin/Paclitaxel and 75% of them completed the 6 courses. Recurrence in patients who received adjuvant chemotherapy was 18.2% and the most frequent site was at the peritoneal level (57.1%). The rate of DFS at one year was 78.8%. In the univariate analysis, patients with an age <45 years (p <0.001) and a FIGO III-IV clinical stage (p = 0.042) resulted in lower disease-free survival. Conclusions: Patients with age <45 years and FIGO III-IV could be predictor of poor DFS in OCCC
