Primary ovarian neuroendocrine carcinoid tumors are extremely rare. However, their clinical course is good, and hence, fertility-sparing surgery is a feasible treatment option in cases of unilateral localized lesions. In this report, we present the case of a 20-year-old nulliparous woman who was diagnosed as having a primary ovarian neuroendocrine carcinoid tumor arising from a mature cystic teratoma. She underwent laparoscopic right ovarian cystectomy and her postoperative recovery was uneventful. The patient has been under close observation over a 1-year follow-up period and has shown no evidence of tumor recurrence.
