Giant Ovarian Mucinous Cystadenoma in An Adolescent Girl: A Case Report
Asian Research Journal of Gynaecology and Obstetrics,
Aims: Ovarian tumours are commonly seen in middle aged women and rare in adolescents. Cystadenoma is an epithelial tumour and occurs in 3rd to 6th decade of life. They are recognized as precursors of ovarian cancer. Here we present a case of a giant ovarian mucinous cystadenoma in 16 year old girl.
Case Presentation: A 16 year old girl presented with vague abdominal pain and abdominal distension. CECT abdomen and pelvis revealed a huge ovarian solid cystic tumour. She underwent exploratory laparotomy with right adnexectomy for complete excision of tumour. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of mucinous cystadenoma of ovary. On follow up patient is doing well.
Conclusion: Early diagnosis and accurate treatment are essential as these tumours can grow to giant sizes and be potentially lethal if left untreated. Giant ovarian tumours particularly if symptomatic, should be considered for surgery.
