Approximately 80% ovarian tumors are benign, and these arise mostly in young adult females. Malignant tumors are more prevalent in ageing women, between the ages of 45-65 years. Mucinous ovarian cancer represents about 5% of epithelial ovarian cancers (EOC). We have reported a case of mucinous cystadenocarcinoma in 35-year-old lady with metastasis to momentum. Imaging (Radiograph & CT scan) studies showed a large right sided pelvic mass with probable origin in the right ovary. Cancer antigen-125 was elevated, while carcinoembrionic antigen and alpha-fetoprotein were normal. Mutational profiles shown distinct finding, as KRAS mutations positive nevertheless p53 and BRCA mutations are absent. She had undergone total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salphingo-oopherectomy along with pelvic dissection for removal of lymph nodes at the age of 35. She was given 3 cycles of chemotherapy with cisplatin and paclitaxel. To the best of our knowledge, this is the one of the little cases of ovarian mucinous cystadenocarcinoma being reported at a relatively young age and the first case being reported from Bangladesh.
