Mucinous Cystadenoma of the Ovary


US – Large multiseptated cystic mass; septae are uniform and demonstrate hyperemia on Doppler.


Mucinous tumors are common and account for approximately 41% of benign ovarian neoplasms. Unlike serous tumors, most mucinous tumors are usually unilateral and multilocular. The cystic spaces of mucinous cystadenomas contain gelatinous material or fluid of various viscosity leading to the nonuniform signal on various imaging modalities. Mucinous cystic tumors of borderline malignancy are noninvasive tumors with excellent survival rates which show identical gross features to those of mucinous cystadenomas. Septal wall thickness and hyperemia are important differentiating features. Differential considerations include mesenteric lymphangioma, pseudocyst, abscess and endometrioma.
