Primary Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is a rare tumour which arises in a mature cystic teratoma, endometrioma or Brenner tumour. The pure variety arises from metaplasia of surface epithelium of ovary and it is the rarest type. For optimal management no definitive treatment protocol is available till date. Also, there is no agreement concerning the postoperative therapy-chemotherapy or radiotherapy. We present a rare case of pure primary SCC of ovary which was managed by aggressive cytoreductive surgery followed by chemotherapy.
