Author(s): Anita Madan, Davinder Pal, Renu Bala and Prabhleen Kaur
Abstract: The ovary is a frequent site of neoplastic tumours that could be either benign or malignant. Ovarian cancer (OC) is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers among women. Regretfully due to the broad spectrum of clinical behaviour and challenging diagnosis most cases are diagnosed at a late stage. On rare occasions, these tumors can grow to massive sizes if left untreated, worsening the prognosis of the patient. We hereby report the rare case of Primary Unilateral Mucinous Cystadenocarcinoma of ovary in a 23-year-old pregnant woman which was initially misdiagnosed as Hydatid disease. Albeit, it was a malignant tumour, it presented with torsion in the post abortal period with benign behaviour and normal levels of CA-125 which is usually elevated in epithelial ovarian malignancies. The mass was removed along with unilateral salpingoophorectomy and histopathologic study revealed a mucinous cystadenocarcinoma.
