Squamous Cell Carcinoma Arising in Mature Cystic Teratoma of the Ovary

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.
