Ectopic adrenal cortex is a rare entity. Usually found in male children; commonly located around kidney, retroperitoneum, spermatic cord and para-testicular region. Rarely, adults with heterotopic adrenal glands are described. Incidence in females is very less; though sometimes detected accidentally in hysterectomy specimens. We describe a case of ectopic adrenal cortical cell in paratubal region in a patient with mucinous cyst adenoma of ovary. A 26-year-old female presented with complains of menstrual irregularities and abdominal discomfort for 6 months. Investigations suggested a right ovarian cyst. Right ovarian cystectomy with partial salpingectomy was performed; histopathology revealed mucinous cyst adenoma. Sections from tube showed presence of ectopic adrenal cortical rest in the paratubal region, incidentally discovered on microscopy. We present this case because of its rarity in females, interesting presentation with another unrelated gynaecological pathology, its potentiality for malignant transformation and possible complications. © 2015, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, All Rights Reserved.
