Xanthogranulomatous inflammation of ovary and fallopian tube is rare type of chronic inflammation and few are reported in the english literature. The affected organ is destroyed and replaced by lipid laden (foamy) histiocytes, admixed with lymphocytes, plasma cells, neutrophils, sometimes multinucleated giant cells and coagulative necrosis. Though it is very rare with preoperative clinical and radiological features mimic ovarian neoplasm, xanthogranulomatous oophoritis should be kept in mind while treating a patient with tubo-ovarian mass to avoid unnecessary radical procedure. We report a case of bilateral xanthogranulomatous oophoritis with salpingitis in a post menopausal women diagnosed clinically as ovarian neoplasm.
