Abstract
Malignant mixed mullerian tumors (MMMT) of the ovary are rare, constituting less than 1% of all primary ovarian tumors. Histologically, tumors include malignant epithelial and sarcomatous elements. MMMT of the ovary is a highly aggressive and rapidly progressive tumor with a poor long-term prognosis. The survival rate is very low inspite of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. The prognostic factors and optimal treatments for this tumor are still controversial because of its rarity. We experienced ten cases of malignant mixed mullerian tumors of the ovary and report our experiences with a brief review of literature.
Key Words: Malignant mixed mullerian tumor, Ovary
