Mixed ovarian tumors are of common occurrence. In this category are placed rare novelties displaying composite granulosa cell and mucinous tumor elements. Such a combination of stromal and epithelial elements may be a chance association of two discrete tumors. Intriguing still is the intimate admixture of these two elements which has been reported only in two cases till date. (1,2) We report the third such case and review the previous cases with an effort to elucidate their enigmatic histogenesis.
