Abstract: Xanthogranulomatous oophoritis is a rare non neoplastic chronic inflammatory process of ovary which causes functional failure of the organ due to gross structural destruction. We report a case of 32 year old female gravid 2 para 0 with 1 history of ectopic pregnancy who was diagnosed with a cystic mass lesion of right ovary by USG and MRI at 20 weeks of gestation. After an uneventful antenatal period, she delivered a live healthy male baby at 39 completed weeks of gestation by caesarean section. Right sided oophorectomy was done and microscopic examination of the specimen showed serous cystadenoma with ovarian stroma infiltration with foamy histiocytes, inflammatory cells and multinucleated giant cells. This case is reported because no case as such is mentioned in literature.
