Surface epithelial tumors of the ovary comprise over fourth of the ovarian neoplasms. Serous adenofibromas are lesser known variants of serous surface epithelial tumors. Though these tumors have a benign fate, yet they can be misinterpreted clinically and radiologically due to their borderline or malignant gross morphological as well as clinical presentation. The cell of origin of surface epithelial tumors of the ovary is histological debated; however, it is now ascertained to have origins from the ovarian cortical and surface lining. Adenofibromas are known to progress in an indolent manner with metachronous behavior for years. The present case is of an ovarian serous adenofibroma in a young female masquerading as peritoneal carcinomatosis.
