Mature cystic teratoma of the ovary is the most common ovarian germ cell tumor and almost benign, but malignant transformation occurs in less than 2% of benign mature teratoma. Of the malignancies arising in teratomas, squamous cell carcinoma is the most common (70-80%). The presentation in stage I disease dose not differ from that of benign cystic teratoma. In the early stage, the treatment is possible through surgical intervention alone. We experienced a case of squamous cell carcinoma of the ovary arising in mature cystic teratoma, which is presented with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Ovarian squamous cell carcinoma, Mature cystic teratoma
