Bottom Line: Ovarian cysts are the most common cause of pelvic masses in women, and in the majority of the cases, women are in their fertile age.Today, the surgical treatment has become more conservative and less invasive; hence, a laparoscopic approach in the presence of benign cysts has become a gold standard.Herein, we report a case of a 21-year-old woman referred to our Surgical Department for an abdominal mass, discovered with a computerised tomographic scan, of 20x10 x 25cm arising from the left ovary, treated with the laparoscopic approach.

ABSTRACT
Ovarian cysts are the most common cause of pelvic masses in women, and in the majority of the cases, women are in their fertile age. Today, the surgical treatment has become more conservative and less invasive; hence, a laparoscopic approach in the presence of benign cysts has become a gold standard. Herein, we report a case of a 21-year-old woman referred to our Surgical Department for an abdominal mass, discovered with a computerised tomographic scan, of 20x10 x 25cm arising from the left ovary, treated with the laparoscopic approach.

Figure 0001: CT scan image of the large cyst

Mentions: A 21-year-old igravid woman was seen for the first time at our department after 8 months of progressive abdominal distension without other symptoms. She did not have a family history for cancer. She referred no bowel or urinary disturbance and her periods were regular. On examination, the abdomen was distended by a large abdominal mass that reached above the level of the umbilicus. Transvaginal ultrasonography did not show abnormalities. The abdominal CT scan showed a large simple cyst with a thin wall uniloculated measuring approximately 19 ×11 × 26 cm occupying the pelvis, ipo and mesogastrium [Figure 1].
