A 65-year-old woman with pure primary ovarian squamous cell carcinoma invading the fallopian tube and the terminal illeum is described. The tumor recurred shortly after surgery in spite of complete ressection. No response to chemotherapy was observed and the patient expired 6 months after diagnosis. In order to establish the diagnosis of pure primary ovarian squamous cell carcinoma extragenital and genital tumors containing squamous elements as well as endometriosis have to be excluded.
