Abstract

Aim: Malignant transformation of mature cystic teratoma (MCT) is an uncommon complication. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult because of the lack of specific symptoms and signs indicating malignancy. Thus, we retrospectively analyzed the clinical characteristics of patients and the role of surgery in their management.
