Brenner tumors are the rare solid ovarian tumor, malignant variant being rarer. It commonly presents with vaginal bleeding, a palpable pelvic mass, and pelvic pain. Mostly, it is unilateral with local dissemination and spreading beyond the pelvis to distant organs is rare. It closely resembles transitional cell carcinoma of urinary bladder. Optimal surgery in advanced disease and surgical staging in the early stage is the corner stone of management. We report a case of malignant Brenner tumor of the ovary in 70-year-old female treated with staging laparotomy followed by adjuvant chemotherapy and having no evidence of disease after 2 years follow-up.
