Abstract

Ovarian tumors have an uncommon occurrence in children and adolescent girls compared with adult women. The peak incidence of ovarian tumors is between 15–19 years of age. Malignant ovarian tumors in children and adolescent girls are extremely rare. A case of a 14-year-old girl with ovarian mucinous adenocarcinoma that has probably not been described before in the literature is presented below.
