    (6). Mature cystic teratoma is the most common germ cell neoplasm and, in some series, the most common ovarian neoplasm removed at surgery (7,8). It is the most common ovarian mass in chil-dren (9). Mature cystic teratomas arise from a single germ cell after the first meiotic division (10). Most mature cystic teratomas are asymp-tomatic.

    Aug 01,  · Primary malignant melanoma in cystic teratoma of the ovary is extremely rare. We could find only 19 such cases on review of the literature. Clinical presentation is similar to that of primary epithelial ovarian cancer. Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment. Use of cisplatin and dacarbazine may be considered in a patient with metastatic disease.

    Mature cystic teratoma Clinical presentation. Mature cystic teratoma is a benign neoplasm that is composed of tissue from at least two germ cell layers (also read: solitary fibrous tumor).Although they might be present at any age, most commonly this type of teratoma .

    The most common malignant transformation is squamous cell carcinoma with malignant melanoma being the rarest. Only three dozen cases have been reported in over years (Xu et al., ). Herein we report a case of malignant melanoma which arose within a mature cystic teratoma. A 64 year old woman presented with complaint of shortness of by: 4.

    Malignant transformation of a mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is a very rare complication with an incidence of –2%;. The most common form of malignant transformation of the MCT is squamous cell carcinoma. Other tumors arising in MCT include basal cell carcinoma, sebaceous tumor, malignant melanoma, adenocarcinoma, sarcoma, and neuroectodermal tumor.

    Results with chemotherapy are poor in this patient subset, and surgical treatment appears to be superior, if technically feasible. Teratoma may be amenable to surgery at relapse, and teratoma also has a better prognosis than carcinoma after late relapse. Teratoma is a relatively resistant histologic subtype, so chemotherapy may not be appropriate.

    Fig. 1B. —year-old woman with mature cystic teratoma without fat in cystic cavity. Axial gadolinium-enhanced fat-saturated T1-weighted image (/14) shows signal suppression (arrow), suggesting presence of small fat component in cyst blacrobaletistidebenanpollmino.courated MRI or gradient-echo technique with both in-phase and opposed-phase imaging is useful to detect small amount of fatty tissue on MR images.

    Objectives Malignant transformation of mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is rare. Unlike squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) in MCT, the other types of neoplasm in MCT have not been discussed in publications. We analyzed the clinical characteristics and prognosis of the other types of neoplasm (non-SCC) compared with those of SCC. Methods A systematic literature search of literature published from

    The purposes of pathologic examination of a lesion suspected of being a malignant melanoma are to provide an accurate diagnosis of melanoma (or not), and to provide prognostic information useful in the clinical management of the patient. In the near future, pathologic attributes will also likely be used to predict responses to therapy, as a guide to the selection of specific therapeutic agents.
