Sertoliform endometrioid carcinoma (SEC) is a rare epithelial ovarian cancer which may be mistaken for sex cord tumour on microscopy. Immunohistochemistry and extensive sampling of tumour to look for areas of conventional endometrioid carcinoma are important to confirm the diagnosis of SEC. We report a case of SEC of ovary in a postmenopausal lady who presented to us with abdominal wall abscess in epigastric region.
