  • N Gupta, T Gupta, S Jindal

Abstract

Malignant transformation of mature germ cell teratoma is rare and has been reported sporadically. Any of the constituent tissue of a teratoma has the potential to undergo malignant transformation. Squamous cell carcinoma is the most common transformation and is derived from the metaplastic squamous epithelium of teratoma. We are reporting a case of 65 years old postmenopausal women with squamous cell carcinoma arising in mature cystic cell teratoma of the ovary.
