  Abstract:
  Struma ovarii belongs to the group of monodermic and highly specific teratomas. It comprises less than 5% of mature teratomas. Our retrospective study covers the peri- od from 1991 to 2000 during which two patients with the diagnosis of struma ovarii were reported in the Institute of Oncology Sremska Kamenica. Both patients had unilateral adnexal mass followed by ascites in one case. In both patients thyroid hormon- al status was in normal range before and after the operation. Total hysterectomy with bilateral oophoro-salphingectomy and total omentectomy were preformed. Histopathological examination confirmed struma ovarii, with follicular, fetal and embry- onic forms of thyroid tissue, without metastases and malignancy. Struma ovarii is an uncommon type of teratomas, difficult to identify without histopathological examina- tion. Surgery is the only treatment because malignant alteration is possible.
