Ovarian cancers are commonly diagnosed gynecological malignancies worldwide. It ranks among the top ten diagnosed cancers and top five deadliest cancers in most countries. However, in spite of this squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the ovary is extremely rare. Here, we present a review of the literature along with a case of a 66-year-old postmenopausal female who presented with swelling, pain abdomen with constipation, and weight loss. She was diagnosed with pure (de novo) primary SCC of left ovary. No pre/co-existing ovarian lesion was identified. Despite external radiation and adjuvant chemotherapy, the patient died in 2 months.
