Endometriosis is a well-known precursor lesion of ovarian malignancies, particularly those of endometrioid and clear-cell types and rarely of serous or mucinous types. The association of endometriosis with mucinous borderline tumors also varies. This case is of a 60 year old female, who had a long history of more than thirty years of endometriosis and developed recurrent endocervical-like mucinous borderline tumor (ELMBT) in endometriotic foci. This case highlights challenges in the management of such complications associated with endometriosis and emphasizes the importance of long-term follow-up in cases of endometriosis.
