Ovarian teratomas account for 15% to 20% of all ovarian tumors. Ovarian Struma (OS) in most cases (up to 50%) refers to monodermal mature ovarian teratoma and is a fairly rare tumor consisting of thyroid tissue. This type of neoplasm accounts for 1% of all ovarian tumors and 2.7% of all dermoid formations. The diagnosis of "ovarian struma" is made if the thyroid tissue is more than 50% of the tumor tissue. The article describes his own experience in managing a patient with a diagnosis of "Malignant struma of the ovary". Data on the clinical and morphological features of the disease are given.
