Ovarian Cystadenoma


  • We report a 30-year-old woman with periampullary cancer and a large left ovarian cystadenoma presenting during pregnancy with features of duodenal obstruction. She had a right benign ovarian tumor removed a year back.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Epigastric Tenderness
  • In physical examination, there were no positive findings, except epigastric pain with diffuse abdominal distension and moderate epigastric tenderness without guarding. No well-defined mass was detected on palpation.[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]
Orthostatic Hypotension
  • Five potential problems have been associated with the resection of massive ovarian tumours: respiratory failure, intraoperative fluids shifts, adequate exposure, orthostatic hypotension and adynamic intestine.[gynecolsurg.springeropen.com]
Social Isolation
  • She delayed seeking medical advice because of social isolation resulting from family problems. The patient weighed 122 kg for a height of 165 cm and showed signs of hirsutism.[gynecolsurg.springeropen.com]
  • Since these issues are generally attributed to regular problems of pregnancy, it may be neglected by either the patient or physician.[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]
  • These huge neglected cysts can mimic other medical conditions on physical examination, like pregnancy, massive ascites, colonic volvulus and idiopathic megacolon [ 5 ], and they can give rise to various clinical complications resulting from local compression[gynecolsurg.springeropen.com]

Adnexal Mass
  • Adnexal masses are usually asymptomatic and incidentally detected. Before extensive use of ultrasound, they are usually discovered during C-section or when they become symptomatic(3). The majority of adnexal masses originate from the ovaries.[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]
  • Adnexal masses constitute a challenge especially in resource-limited countries like our own where poor access to health care and noncompliance are usually anticipated.[academic.oup.com]
  • Ultrasound typically large cystic adnexal mass multilocular with numerous thin septations loculations may contain low-level internal echogenicity due to increased mucin content different locules may contain various degrees of echogenicity MRI Mucinous[radiopaedia.org]
  • Ultrasonography: The initial imaging study recommended in the evaluation of adnexal masses is the pelvic US.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Pelvic Pain

  • (See Presentation, DDx, and Workup.)[emedicine.medscape.com]
  • A full sepsis workup in infants younger than 12 weeks with fever and associated acute otitis media is often necessary. Laboratory studies may be needed to confirm or exclude possible related systemic or congenital diseases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Ovarian Mass
  • Discussion Giant ovarian masses are extremely rare.[cancerjournal.net]
  • Ovarian mass was explored out, pedicles traced and dissection of ureter done, pedicles clamped and ovarian mass was excised and sent for frozen section which reported as mucinous cystadenoma of ovary.[medcraveonline.com]
  • The majority of ovarian masses are cystic, and many of them are functional which may spontaneously resolve (2).[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]

  • In fact, earlier diagnosis is associated with less invasive treatment approaches and prevention of tissue destruction.[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]
  • After treatment of the patient’s STDs, and after a brief period during which she was lost to follow-up due to estrangement from her mother and homelessness, the patient was relocated.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]
  • This updated second edition includes exciting new advances in ovarian cancer detection and treatment and provides an analysis of current research into aspects of malignant transformation, growth control, and metastasis.[books.google.com]
  • Prompt and accurate treatment is essential as these tumors can grow to massive sizes and be potentially lethal if left untreated.[academic.oup.com]


  • Treatment and prognosis A mucinous cystadenoma is benign with excellent prognosis (c.f. borderline mucinous tumors of the ovary or mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of the ovary).[radiopaedia.org]
  • Clear cell cystadenoma: Clear cell cystadenoma is a benign cyst with an excellent prognosis. Complications Cystadenomas of the ovary are benign lesions that rarely recur after incomplete resection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • We describe a new laminopathy with ovarian cystadenoma and explore its molecular etiology. The case is a 15-year-old girl who presents the prominent progeroid disorders, multiple system degeneration and early-onset cystadenoma of the ovary.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Etiology Thought to largely derive from ovarian epithelial inclusions, which itself is derived from fallopian tube epithelium. Location They can be bilateral in 15% of cases.[radiopaedia.org]
  • Diagnostic laparoscopy can be used in masses of uncertain etiology, as well. Surgery is the treatment of choice for serous cystadenomas. Unilateral salpingo-oophorectomy is commonly considered in huge tumors (7).[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]


  • Microscopical images[edit] Epidemiology[edit] Ovarian serous cystadenoma accounts for the largest proportion of benign ovarian tumours, making up over 50-80% of all malignant epithelial ovarian tumours.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Seromucinous cystadenoma: According to some authors, seromucinous cystadenomas likely derive from endometriosis.[5] Epidemiology Serous cystadenoma: Benign serous tumors of the ovary represent 16% of all ovarian epithelial neoplasms and account for two-thirds[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pathophysiology Functional cysts The median menstrual cycle lasts 28 days, beginning with the first day of menstrual bleeding and ending just before the subsequent menstrual period.[emedicine.medscape.com]


  • Conclusion: Proper diagnosis of masses during pregnancy can save maternal and fetal health through preventing adverse outcomes, such as abortion or preterm labor.[jmrh.mums.ac.ir]
  • Early diagnosis and prompt surgery may prevent irreversible adnexal damage by untwisting the vascular pedicle and removing an associated cyst or tumor, if present [15,16].[jpss.eu]
  • Prevention of fluid spillage was then taken into consideration. The tumor was found to originate from the left ovary, independent of surrounding organs and with no adhesion to the small intestine or colon.[file.scirp.org]
  • Hence, there are no known methods to prevent the tumor occurrence. Early diagnosis with close monitoring and treatment of the tumor is important. A timely tumor recognition and prompt treatment will help in having optimal ...[najdi.si]
