Occurrence of ovarian cystic neoplasms with mural nodules are rare entities, however well established. We report a case of a leiomyomatous mural nodule co-existing with an ovarian mucinous borderline tumour. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of a leiomyomatous nodule co-existing with an ovarian mucinous borderline tumour in the English literature and it becomes more interesting owing to the presence of ovarian mucinous neoplasms in both the ovaries which is also a rare phenomenon. Primary leiomyomas of ovary are rare ovarian tumours and must be considered as a possible differential whenever cystic ovarian neoplasms are detected with solid component radiologically, since they have a benign course and a good prognosis.
