Abstract

Uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC) is an uncommon histologic variant of endometrial carcinoma that typically arises in post menopausal women, that may present with extrauterine spread, resulting in high relapse rate and poor prognosis. Mature cystic teratomas (MCT) are common tumors that occur during the reproductive years. We report a case of a 60 years old female with UPSC with MCT of left ovary. To our knowledge, this is the second report of UPSC combined with ovarian MCT.
