Abstract

Mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is commonest germ cell tumor of ovary. In 1-2% of MCTs malignant transformation is known to occur. Most of the malignancies originating from MCTs are squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas of intestinal type are exceptionally rare. Nine cases have been reported till date and we are presenting this case because of its rarity and unusual presentation. We are presenting a case of 33 year old female with abdominal mass and raised CEA and CA-125. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed the diagnosis as adenocarcinoma of intestinal type arising in mature cystic teratoma.
