Two cases of mixed germ cell and epithelial primary ovarian tumors which developed in women 47 and 57 years of age are reported. In both cases, large teratomas measuring 20 and 21 cm were observed in combination with carcinoids and malignant mucinous neoplasms. A possible common oncogenic mechanism is discussed and a literature review is presented.
