Although multilocular cystic gynaecological masses in which the loculi show variable signal intensity on both T1 and T2 weighted images have been considered to be mucinous cystadenoma or adenocarcinoma, other gynaecological tumours can demonstrate this "stained glass" appearance. These include mature cystic teratoma, fibrothecoma, endometrioma, Brenner's tumour of the ovary and degenerated leiomyoma of the uterus, all of which may mimic mucinous tumours of the ovaries.
