A case of squamous cell carcinoma arising in a dermoid cyst of the ovary of a 38 year-old woman is reported. Its frequency is nearly 1%; nevertheless it is opinion that the real frequency could be higher if the hystological examination of the cyst would be made more accurately. Clinical and pathological findings of this case are presented in this brief note. The importance to always make an intraoperatively frozen-section examination is emphasized. The patient is alive and well after six months after surgery.
