A case of neurocndocrine carcinoma arising in the form of a mural nodule in an ovarian mucinous cystadenoma is presented. This represents the third case of a neuroendocrine carcinoma arising in an ovarian mucinous tumor. The carcinoma cells were moderately to strongly immunoreactive for enolase. keratin, chromogranin. synaptophysin, and focally, neuron-specific enolase, and contained 130–330 nm neurosecretory granules. The patient presented 9 months after surgery with liver metastases and peritoneal implants. She died of disease within 10 months of initial presentation.
