A gigantic ovarian cyst ? a case study


Author(s): Dominika Hudziak, Adam Dyrda, Krzysztof Nowosielsk

The paper presents the case of 68-year-old patient with a benign ovarian tumor weighing 42 kg. Diagnostic difficulties due to the large size of the tumor and its histopathological picture (a combination of serous cystadenoma and fibroid tumor) were presented. The patient’s condition and the treatment of symptoms secondary to the size of the cyst and surgical procedure were also described. Spectacular photos of the patient before and after surgery were enclosed. The patient was discharged in good condition on the 4th day after the operation. The 6 month follow-up revealed no complications and was uneventful.
