Abstract

Mural nodules of the ovary are described as solid masses or nodules which are histologically

different from the background cystic tumour. These nodules can be associated with both serous and mucinous ovarian tumours but more commonly with mucinous subtypes. These mural nodules could be benign or malignant. The subtypes include sarcoma-like, sarcomatoid, anaplastic and mixed. We describe a case of a borderline mucinous ovarian tumour with intraepithelial carcinoma with a mural nodule of anaplastic carcinoma.
