<jats:p>Maternal epithelial ovarian cancer is rare; its rarity is reflected by the paucity of reported cases in the literature. Its incidence appears to be increased in the older pregnant patient, and since childbearing among older patients has markedly risen in more recent years it is likely that this disease will become more common. Currently, there are no definitive guidelines regarding patient management in maternal epithelial ovarian cancer. Management should therefore be case-dependent, individualised and multidisciplinary in nature. Data centralisation for individual cases including detailed information on clinico-pathological variables, treatment regimens, maternal and neonatal outcomes may be beneficial in identifying optimal management strategies in these rare tumours.</jats:p>
