Mohammed Elhassan SA, Khan S, El-Makki A - Case Rep Pediatr (2015)

Bottom Line: We are presenting a unique case of an 11-year-old girl admitted for investigation of progressive abdominal distention of more than one-year duration.Due to the complete cystic nature of the mass and its enormous size, it was not visualized by the ultrasound and was reported as massive ascites.MRI and postoperative histopathology confirmed a diagnosis of giant serous cystadenoma of the right ovary.

ABSTRACT
We are presenting a unique case of an 11-year-old girl admitted for investigation of progressive abdominal distention of more than one-year duration. Due to the complete cystic nature of the mass and its enormous size, it was not visualized by the ultrasound and was reported as massive ascites. MRI and postoperative histopathology confirmed a diagnosis of giant serous cystadenoma of the right ovary. She underwent a right ovarian cystectomy with complete preservation of both ovaries and fallopian tubes and is doing well on outpatient follow-up.

Mentions: When the cyst wall was reached, blunt and sharp dissection using surgical scissors was used to separate the cyst wall from the surface of the ovary. Intraoperative visualization did not reveal any abnormality of the left adnexal structures. The cyst was aspirated prior to its delivery and gave 13000 milliliters of fluid. The patient underwent right ovarian cystectomy with complete preservation of both ovaries and fallopian tubes. It weighed 13 kg and contained 13 liters of fluid. (Figure 3) Histopathological examination of the cyst revealed simple tubal-type epithelium confirming the diagnosis of a serous cystadenoma of the right ovary, consistent with the preoperative MRI diagnosis.
