Huge Mucinous Cystadenoma: A Rare Abdominal Mass in AdolescentDownload PDF
Mucinous cystadenoma (MCA) are rare benign neoplasm in adolescent age group. Only few cases have been described before and they often present as large abdominal masses. We present a case of MCA for its rare occurrence in 14 years old girl that had a huge mass arising from the left ovary and causing right mild hydro uretero nephrosis with early obstructive nephropathy. Unilateral salpingo- oophorectomy is usually sufficient treatment for these cases. The diagnosis of MCA should be considered in adolescent who present with huge pelvi-abdominal masses. Early recognition and intervention are necessary to avoid potential complication.
