Abstract
Mural nodules in mucinous ovarian tumors are very rare. Since Prat and Scully first described sarcomatous and sarcoma-like mural nodules within mucinous ovarian tumors in 1979, only about 30 cases have been reported in the literature. Pathologically, mural nodules have three different types; i.e. 1) sarcoma-like mural nodule, 2) sarcomatous mural nodule, 3) anaplastic carcinomatous mural nodule. It is important to distinguish sarcoma-like mural nodule from another two type. because the former in the mucinous ovarian tumor has more favorable prognosis than the latter. We report a case of mucinous cystadenoma with sarcoma-like mural nodules in a 23-year-old nulliparous woman.
Key Words: Sarcoma-like mural nodule, Mucinous cystadenoma, Ovary
