    Squamous cell carcinoma arising in ovarian endometriosis is extremely rare, but a case is reported in a 62 year old woman. If such an ovarian tumour is discovered evidence of teratoma, Brenner tumour, or endometriosis should be sought. Extensive sampling is mandatory as the developing tumour often overgrows the foci of endometriosis, thus obliterating evidence of its origin.
