Ovarian Serous Cystadenoma in Pregnancy - A Case Report

Dr. Anagha Shyam Prasad [2] | Dr. Shainaz Tabassum [2]

Abstract: The incidence of ovarian tumors concurrent with pregnancy is relatively rare, occurring at a rate of 1 in 1000 pregnancies. Among benign ovarian neoplasm observed during pregnancy, cystadenomas both mucinous and serous and mature cystic teratomas are the most common. Serous tumors typically manifest with abdominal pain, discomfort, and distension. We present a case of a 21 - year - old pregnant woman presenting with abdominal pain and vomiting, ultimately diagnosed with a serous cystadenoma ovary through ultrasound examination. Notably, intraoperative findings revealed characteristic features of the cyst, leading to successful cystectomy. This case underscores the importance of considering ovarian tumors in pregnant patients presenting with abdominal symptoms to prevent potential complications such as ovarian torsion, intrauterine growth restriction, and preterm birth.
