Kim JH, Cho DH - Obstet Gynecol Sci (2015)

Bottom Line: A 32-year-old pregnant woman was found to have an ovarian tumor.A normal infant was delivered and there were no signs of recurrence.Currently, the patient is being followed for 24 months after the initial treatment and all imaging data show no evidence of recurrence.

ABSTRACT
There are few reports of pregnancy complicated by a primary borderline parovarian tumor. A 32-year-old pregnant woman was found to have an ovarian tumor. At 13 weeks of gestation, cystectomy was performed and a diagnosis of primary borderline parovarian tumor was made. At 38 weeks of gestation, she underwent cesarean section combined with a restaging operation. A normal infant was delivered and there were no signs of recurrence. Currently, the patient is being followed for 24 months after the initial treatment and all imaging data show no evidence of recurrence. This report includes a short review of the existing literature on this topic and documents this case in detail. This case demonstrates the appropriate procedure for evaluating and treating a primary borderline parovarian tumor during pregnancy.

Mentions: On presentation to our institution, an ultrasonography showed that the fetus had a biparietal diameter of 37 mm, indicating appropriate growth for a 13-week singleton pregnancy and an adnexal mass, measuring approximately 17×12 cm, with a homogenous and unilocular cystic component, arising from the right ovary. Magnetic resonance imaging of the abdomen revealed a homogeneous unilocular parovarian cyst, measuring 17×12×10 cm, located close to the ipsilateral ovary (Fig. 1A). Preoperative investigations (cell blood test, biochemistry, electrocardiogram, chest X-ray, and CA-125) were normal.
