Authors: Rohit Kumar Sharma, Dhiraj Kumar Mishra, Natasha Nargotra, Tanu Singh.

ABSTRACT

Background: Benign cystic ovarian mass is a very common incidentally detected mass lesion in the reproductive age group female. A giant ovarian follicular cyst is a very rare entity described in the literature. Imaging modalities including ultrasonography (USG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) play a pivotal role in the differential diagnosis of cystic ovarian mass lesions. Case Presentation: A young adult female presented to surgery outpatient department with the complaints of abdominal pain with normal vital parameters. Subsequent USG and MRI study showed a large abdominopelvic cystic mass lesion with right mild hydroureteronephrosis. Furthermore, the histopathological investigation confirms the diagnosis of a simple follicular cyst. Conclusion: Imaging modality collaboration with the histopathological findings may lead to accurate diagnosis of cystic ovarian mass. USG and MRI play a vital role in narrow down the differential diagnosis, which can be further confirmed on histopathological investigations.
