Abstract:

Ovarian mucinous carcinoma is 2% to 4% of all epithelial ovarian cancers and is known to have good prognosis. It is low stage at diagnosis, but one of the least studied types of ovarian epithelial cancer. Sometimes anaplastic foci are found with ovarian mucinous carcinoma and several types of mural nodules may develop in the wall of mucinous tumors. It is rarely encountered and reported in less than 35 cases with no reports in South Korea. Prognosis of these, if unruptured, is not as poor as initially suggested. We report a case of anaplastic carcinoma arising from mucinous carcinoma with fatal outcome in a 24-year-old female.
