ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Mature Cystic Teratoma

History: 18 y.o. girl with distension of abdomen for 3 years, abdominal discomfort and reflux symptoms for 1-2 years.

Findings: Frontal abdominal radiographs demonstrated a well formed calcification in the left upper quadrant. A follow up CT scan revealed a 23x16x27cm cystic mass in the abdomen containing a focus of calcification and adjacent fat. The mass appeared to arise from the right ovary, ascending from the pelvis and pulling the right broad ligament, in turn causing rightward deviation of the uterus. A smaller left ovarian teratoma, measuring 4.0x3.7cm was seen to contain a larger fat content. All other abdominopelvic organs were displaced, but normal.

Ddx: Dermoid, cystadenocarcinoma, abscess, endometriosis, any germ cell or other ovarian solid or cystic tumor.

Dxhow: Surgery, Histology

Exam: Firm distension of upper abdomen.

No MeSH data available.


Contrast enhanced CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis with sagital and coronal reconstructions.  A 23x16x27cm cystic mass is seen in the abdomen containing a focus of calcification (arrow) and adjacent fat.  The mass appears to arise from the right ovary, ascending from the pelvis and pulling the right broad ligament, in turn causing rightward deviation of the uterus.  A smaller left ovarian teratoma, measuring 4.0x3.7cm is seen to contain a larger fat content.  All other abdominal and pelvic organs are displaced, but normal.
