PMID:  18840187     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We describe the first reported case of extensive calcification seen in association with serous cystadenofibroma of the ovary, illustrating that calcification in the female genital tract may be extensive in nature, presenting in a fashion that is not entirely typical of dystrophic or metastatic calcification. This case demonstrates that extensive calcification within the pelvis should be interpreted with caution, as it may not represent disseminated malignancy.
