This case report provides a brief summary of the clinicopathological features of the ovarian teratomas such as, the immature teratoma which being a rare tumour was diagnosed in a 15 year old adolescent girl, managed surgically by laparotomy followed by chemotherapy, and the other case of a benign mature cystic teratoma in an elderly 52 year old postmenopausal woman, managed surgically although benign cystic teratomas are rare in the postmenopausal age group.
