Abstract

Xanthogranulomatous inflammation is a special form of chronic inflammation that is destroying normal tissue of affected organs which are replaced by chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate admixed with foci or sheets of foam cells, fibroplasia, chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate and vascular proliferation. Only a few cases of xanthogranulomatous oophoritis have been reported.We report a case of 35 year old female who presented with lower abdominal pain and polymennorhea.A total hysterectomy with bilateral salpingoopherectomy was performed on the suspicion of an ovarian neoplasm.
