Abstract
About 15 to 20% of ovarian tumors are of germ cell origin, and about 95% of these are cystic teratoma. when the teratoma is composed either entirely or predominantly of thyroid tissue, it called struma ovarii. Struma ovarii represents about 2.7% of cystic teratoma. The incidence of malignant struma ovarii is probably much less than 5% of all struma ovarii. We have observed a case of malignant struma ovarii originated from the left ovary of a 46-year-old woman, and present this case with a brief review of concerned literatures.
Key Words: malignant struma ovarii
