Female adnexal tumor of Wolffian origin (FATWO) is a rare, poorly understood lesion characterized by variety of epithelial patterns and is known to occur in the broad ligament, mesosalpinx, fallopian tube, ovary, and pelvic peritoneum. About 80 cases of FATWO have been reported till date. A 70-year-old posthysterectomized woman reported with lump abdomen. She was provisionally diagnosed as malignant ovarian tumor. The patient was taken up for staging laparotomy. A solid mass arising from the left adnexa was removed along with the right-sided salpingo-oophorectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy. Histopathological report was “benign Wolffian adnexal tumor.” FATWOs are rare tumors arising from the remnants of the mesonephric duct. Although most of them are benign, some have the potential for malignant behavior. Diagnosis is often based on exclusion of other neoplasms. Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy are considered the recommended mode of therapy. The role of adjuvant radiation therapy or chemotherapy remains debatable.
