Abstract

Benign mature cystic teratoma has been seen through all ages of a woman’s age. It has varied presentations. Malignant transformation in teratoma though rare is usually seen in postmenopausal women. Malignant transformation is usually detected postoperatively on histopathology. We are reporting a case in which a postmenopausal lady was operated and squamous cell carcinoma in a dermoid cyst was detected postoperatively. Certain signs on the imaging can help to diagnose this in the preoperative period so that proper counselling and treatment can be given to the patient.

Keywords: MCT, MT.
