Ovarian tumors have occasionally been reported in pregnant women, the incidence as per literature being 1in 81 to 1 in 2000 pregnancies. Out of this, about 2-5% are malignant, thus contributing to the rarity of malignant ovarian tumors in pregnant women. One such occurrence in a 24-year old female patient is reported here considering its extreme rarity.
