PURPOSE: Mature cystic teratomas are the most common benign ovarian neoplasms. Our aim is to analyse these cases by pathologic and clinical findings in our centre with the view of updated knowledge. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our study, 50 case reports diagnosed as mature cystic teratoma (or dermoid cyst) in Mustafa Kemal University Pathology Laboratory between 2005 and 2010 have been reviewed. RESULTS: Of 50 cases, the findings on mature cystic teratomas were as follows: the number of tumours located at the right ovary was 22, the left ovary, 23, with 5 cases bilaterally. Age range was 14-58 with mean rate 35.4. In two cases, tumour markers were high, one case presented with torsion; one case was obtained incidentally during delivery. CONCLUSION: Mature cystic teratomas are benign neoplasms with low malign transformation rate. Our series are low in number but our findings show the dynamic nature of these tumours.
