Advanced mucinous ovarian cancer is a separate entity and has different biological behaviour. There is a wide range of therapeutic challenges and dilemmas in the management of these patients.

This case is highlighted to emphasize the challenges in the decision making for the management of advanced mucinous ovarian cancer.
