At present, there is no standard of care on the use of letrozole in ovarian cancer management. We performed a systematic review of the available literature addressing this issue. Data demonstrated a role for letrozole in ovarian cancer, in both the primary and recurrent setting. Letrozole, which has a favorable toxicity profile, seems to assure a prolonged recurrence-free interval, particularly when used as maintenance treatment, in low grade serous ovarian cancer; in recurrent cases it had also led to prolonged disease control. However, the optimal setting and biologically relevant patient population needs to be defined in larger trials.
