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.
