Malignant mixed Mullerian tumour (MMMT) of ovary is a rare biphasic malignant neoplasm. It can
occur anywhere in the female genital tract , but most commonly affects the uterus. Fallopian tubes, ovaries
and the vagina can also be involved. MMMT of the ovary is extremely rare and accounts for about 1-2% of all
ovarian malignancies with lesser than 400 cases reported in the literature.[1] The risk factors for MMMTs
include nulliparity, obesity long-term tamoxifen use and exogenous oestrogen . A rare exception aside this is a
lesion of postmenopausal women.[1,2] MMMT is composed histologically of malignant stromal and epithelial
components.Based on the origin of the stromal component ,MMMT can be classified as heterologous or
homologous.These tumors are associated with aggressive clinical course and very poor prognosis. Older age at
presentation, suboptimal debulking and advanced stage at presentation are poor prognostic indicator
