The ovary is a common site of both primary and secondary tumours. It may be the seat of simultaneous presence of more than one tumour. Often a combination of a malignant tumour is seen within the ovary harbouring a benign tumour. Simultaneous presence of two malignant tumours is rare. Here we describe a 43 year old woman presenting with a simultaneous metastatic adenocarcinoma (primary in colon) along with a papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma of the ovary.
