Extraovarian mullerian-type cystic tumors of the female. A report of six cases and review of the literature
Six cases of extraovarian cystic tumors of mullerian type are reported. Patient age ranged from 27-71 years. Tumor diameters were 5-11 cm and were located in the mesentery (4/6) and retroperitoneum (2/6). Four tumors were of mucinous type (1/4 of borderline malignancy) and two of serous type. These tumors clinically and histopathologically mimic other primary tumors of the peritoneum. The problems of differential diagnosis are discussed.
