Abstract

We report the occurrence of a rare case of a huge ovarian tumor in Saint George’s Hospital in Mumbai, India. Our patient was a middle-aged woman presented with marked abdominal distension and discomfort at the emergency surgical department. The data were documented through history, clinical examination, laboratory investigations, ultrasound examination, and by computed tomography scan abdomen and pelvis. The case was found to be as a rare massive ovarian mucinous cystadenoma. This case report emphasizes the significance of thorough evaluation of all women presented with vague abdominal pain. Although the condition that is extremely rare, it is a potential danger in its massive form, if timely diagnosis and management are not done. With the increasing awareness about such conditions, more cases are detected and reported.
