A 75-year old and a 48-year old woman were treated by hysterectomy and unilateral adenectomy. The extirpated ovarian tumors both have shown histologically the structures of Struma ovarii with monodermal differentiation. The Struma ovarii represents a rare special manifestation of mature teratoma with typical histological appearance. At similarities to original thyroid tissue are given directions.
