Giant cystadenoma, Mucinous cystadenoma, Oophorectomy, Ovarian tumor


We report a rare case of a giant ovarian mucinous cystadenoma in a 58-year-old menopausal woman, from Kongolo town, Tanganyika Province, Congo, who had been suffering from progressive abdominal distension and shortness of breath for 16 months. Abdominal-pelvic ultrasound finding was consistent with an ovarian tumor, and bilateral oophorectomy and total hysterectomy were performed. The ovarian mass removed was white and contained a viscous fluid. It weighed 7 kg and was oval in shape with a length of 57 cm on the long axis and 48 cm on the short axis. Histopathological analysis of sections from the removed mass and samples of aspirated cyst fluid confirmed the diagnosis of mucinous cystadenoma of the right ovary. Postoperatively, the patient remained in the hospital for 10 days, was discharged in good condition, and was required to visit our outpatient clinic every 6 months. At her past visit, 1 year after discharge, the patient was in good condition and no mass was detected on abdominal-pelvic ultrasound.
