Abstract
The ovarian dermoid cyst is the most common ovarian neoplasm in young women and comprises approximately 10-20% of all ovarian tumors. But malignant transformation is an uncommon complication in an ovarian dermoid cyst, usually being reported in about 1.0-1.8% of cases. Most common malignant transformation of ovarian dermoid cyst is squamous cell carcinoma, which represents about 75-80% followed by adenocarcinoma in 6-7%. We report a case of adenocarcinoma arising from ovarian dermoid cyst with a brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Ovarian dermoid cyst, Malignant transformation, Adenocarcinoma
