Abstract

Serous tumours comprise one fourth of all ovarian tumours. Most occur in adults. We present a case of a 24-year-old woman with bilateral ovarian masses which appeared to be malignant on imaging and perioperatively. However, microscopy revealed benign serous cystadenofibromas of the ovaries. This case signifies the importance of microscopy in neoplasms that masquerade as malignant on imaging, perioperatively and grossly. Serous cystadenofibroma of the ovary is a relatively rare benign tumour of the ovary.1 We present a case of bilateral ovarian serous papillary cystadenofibromas in a young female.
