A Huge Mature Cystic Teratoma in a Nulliparous Patient QD03-QD04
Dr. Isil Uzun,
Yedikule Konaklari B4/4 Yedikule/Istanbul.
Here we report a case of a giant mature cystic teratoma of the ovary in a 38-year-old nullipaous woman. The patient presented with abdominal distension and abdominal pain. Laparotomy and cystectomy yielded satisfactory results. Histologic evaluation confirmed a benign cystic teratoma of the ovary. The patient underwent surgery for rupture of corpus luteum six years ago and no gross lesion was seen at the operation. This case demonstrates that dermoid cysts can grow to enormous sizes within a short duration.
