Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial glands outside the endometrium, and ovary is the common site for endometriosis. Endometriosis can also transform into malignant tumors. When endometriosis is present within the tumors, the term endometriosis-derived tumor applies, whereas when endometriosis is recognized adjacent to the tumor, it is called as endometriosis-associated tumor. Borderline serous tumor is surface epithelial ovarian tumor. The endometriosis-associated ovarian malignancies are clear cell adenocarcinoma and endometrioid adenocarcinoma, whereas serous and mucinous are rare malignancies with endometriosis. Here, we are presenting a case report in which endometriosis was associated with borderline serous tumor.
