Abstract
Struma ovarii consists of thyroid tissue which is derived from germ cells in a mature teratoma. Five percent of struma ovarii are malignant, and of these only five percent metastasize. The rarity of this disease has resulted in difficulty in agreeing on treatment regimens and in limited imaging and monitoring difficulties encountered in their management. We have experienced two cases of malignant struma ovarii with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Germ cell tumor, Malignant struma ovarii
