Malignant transformation (MT) occurs in about 1–2% of all mature cystic teratomas (MCTs) of the ovary.Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which is the most common histology, accounts for 75–85% of MCTs,while adenocarcinomas account for only about 7%.The prognosis of an advanced carcinoma associated with a MCT is worse than that of an epithelial ovarian carcinoma, mainly because chemotherapy is much less effective for the former.Here, we report a case of advanced mucinous adenocarcinoma arising from a MCT. We also systematically reviewed adenocarcinomas arising from MCTs to identify prognostic differences between adenocarcinoma and SCC.....
