Abstract
The malignant mixed mullerian tumor (MMMT) is an uncommon tumor containing epithelial and mesenchymal components. MMMT of the ovary is rare, constituting less than 1% of all primary ovarian tumors. It is a particularly aggressive and rapidly progressive tumor, especially in advanced stages. This disease is usually advanced when diagnosed, because it is asymptomatic in early stage. The survival rate is very low in spite of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The optimal treatment for this neoplasm is still controversial because of its rarity. We experienced one case of malignant mixed mullerian tumor of the ovary and report with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Malignant Mixed Mullerian Tumor, ovary
