Abstract

Surface epithelial tumours are the most commonly encountered neoplasms of the ovary. Among these, Mucinous tumours accounts for 14% of ovarian tumours. Coexistence of mucinous tumour with another surface epithelial tumour is rare. We report here a rare case of mucinous cystadenocarcinoma with Brenner’s component in a 70-year-old post-menopausal female. She presented with chief complaints of Constipation and abdominal distention since 4 months. The symptoms were gradually progressive in nature. Co-occurrence of these two tumours favours the theory of common origin of surface epithelial tumours from coelomic or germinal epithelium, and hence, it undergoes metaplastic changes to transitional or urothelial- likes morphology.
