Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of female genital tract is uncommon and is usually seen in endometrium. Only a few cases involving the ovary have been reported. Its clinical manifestations, imaging modalities, and gross features can mimic ovarian malignancy. Thus, a preoperative diagnosis of this entity is important to avoid radical surgical treatment. We report a case of xanthogranulomatous oophoritis in a 24 years female, which was clinically and radiologically misdiagnosed as ovarian neoplasm. The approach to such a case and the differential diagnosis has also been discussed.
