Teratomas are neoplasms that originate in pluripotential cells and contain representations of all three germ layers in a rather mature state. Specialized forms of teratoma with unilateral development of certain tissues, such as struma ovarii, argentaffin tumors, cholesteatoma, primary choriocarcinoma of the ovary, pseudomucinous cystoma and neurogenic cysts are known. In this paper we describe an ovarian teratoma consisting entirely of sebaceous glands.
