Exfoliated ovarian adenocarcinoma cells in the ascitic fluid bearing tufts of cytoplasmic projections were identified. These eosinophilic projections varied from cell to cell. Many of them were long and slender, with terminal plate and showed periodicity. Some were short and slender with pericellular distribution. These ciliated hair like processes and tufts of microvilli are an exceedingly rare phenomenon observed on neoplastic cells. We describe a case of serous papillary ovarian adenocarcinoma with exfoliated surface specialised adenocarcinoma cells in a 47 year old woman. This is a unique feature of cytoplasmic differentiation observed by light microscopy.
