Abstract

Collision tumors are intermixture of two different neoplasms occurring in same organ without intermixture of cell types [1]. These tumors have been reported in various organs, such as the esophagus, stomach, liver, thyroid gland, ovary and lung [1]. Ovarian collision tumor is a rare entity [1]. The mechanism of origin is uncertain. The majority of these tumors are a collision between carcinomas and sarcomas or lymphomas but rarely between two types of carcinoma [2]. The most common histological combination of collision tumor is the coexistence of Ovarian Teratoma with Mucinous cystadenoma or cystadenocarcinoma [1].

Here we report a very unusual combination of papillary serous cystadenofibroma with benign mature cystic teratoma in bilateral ovaries along with peritoneal implant of the Papillary serous cystadenofibroma component over the bladder mimicking a carcinoma in a young woman with history of infertility.
