Laparoscopic management of a giant challenging ovarian dermoid cyst: A case report
Keywords:Huge ovarian dermoid cyst, Mature Teratoma, laparoscopy, extracorporeal drainaige
Background: Dermoid cyst accounts for 10-20 % of all ovarian tumors. Traditionally giant ovarian cysts have been removed through a midline laparotomy. Here we report a case of laparoscopy-assisted removal of a giant dermoid cyst in an adolescent girl.
Case Presentation: A 17-year-old girl presented with a complaint of abdominal distension for 7 months. Abdominal examination revealed a well-defined tense cystic mass arising from the pelvis and extending up to the epigastric region. CT scan of abdomen and pelvis reported a mature teratoma of size 25.5x19.9x35cm of the right ovary. Laparoscopic excision of the cyst was performed following extracorporeal drainage of the cyst.
Conclusion: Laparoscopy-assisted of a giant ovarian dermoid cyst is a feasible mode of treatment irrespective of its size provided malignancy has been ruled out.
