Cystadenofibromas are tumors of the ovary which originate from the surface coelomic epithelium. Benign mucinous cystadenofibroma is a very rare form of these tumors, which consists of dominant stromal component of the connective tissue and one or more cysts.


The case of a 62-year-old female with tumor of right ovary is reported in this paper. Histologically, tumor of the ovary had multilocular cystic formation, lined by a single-layer of mucoproductive cylindrical epithelium - endocervical type. In one area of tumor, the stromal component was abundant and made from partially hyalinised dense connective tissue. Mucinous cystadenofibroma was diagnosed on the basis of histological examination. Since the mucinous type of cystadenofibroma or adenofibroma is rare, this case has been chosen to be presented.


Mucinous cystadenofibromas are differentially-diagnostically very similar to different malignant tumors and it is extremely important to make correct diagnosis of these neoplasms.
