Abstract
Squamous cell carcinoma of the ovary is very rare malignant tumor originating from the malignant transfomation of mature cystic teratoma, usually being reported in about 1-3% of cases. Of malignant transformation, squamous cell carcinoma is the most common type and its prognosis is poor. Because of its rarity, the clinicopathologic characteristics are not well established. We have experienced a case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in mature cystic teratoma of ovary and present it with brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Mature cystic teratoma, Squamous cell carcinoma
