Epithelial carcinoma accounts for more than 95% of ovarian malignancy. Approximately 15% of all
ovarian tumours are mucinous. Approximately 80% of the mucinous tumour are benign, 10% are
borderline and 10% are invasive carcinomas. Hence bilateral invasive mucinous carcinoma is a rare
type of tumour with low incidence. In our case, a 37 years old woman presented with irregular menses,
oligomenorrhea, pain in abdomen and abdominal distension. Radiological studies suggested endometriotic
cysts however on histopathological examination, it revealed mucinous cystadenocarcinoma in both ovary.
Thus histopathology is gold standard for definitive diagnosis.
