Abstract

Teratomas of the uterus are rare neoplasms and are usually polypous lesions that present clinically as abnormal uterine bleeding. Gliomatosis peritonei (GP) is characterized by peritoneal implants of non-neuronal glial tissue and is a rarely-encountered complication of ovarian teratomas. To the best of our knowledge, mature cystic teratoma of the uterus as well as ovarian teratoma with GP and ovarian endometriosis are rare phenomena. Here, we report a case of mature cystic teratoma of the uterus presenting as an endometrial polyp in a patient with a history of ovarian teratoma with GP and ovarian endometriosis.
