PINO PEREZ, Felipe Vladimir et al. Giant intraligamentary ovary cyst and uterine myomatosis. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2017, vol.43, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-3062.

We present the case of a 55-year-old female with giant ovarian cyst. She was attended in the gynecology consultation by members of the Cuban Medical Brigade, at the Regional Hospital of New Amsterdam in the Republic of Guyana during August, 2016. She presented a size increase abdomen, of approximately two years of evolution. The diagnosis was suspected by ultrasonography and computerized axial tomography. An exploratory laparotomy confirmed a giant cystic tumor in the right ovary of extraordinary dimensions (48 cm in diameter and 12.5 kg in weight), beside uterine myomatosis. A total hysterectomy was performed with double annexectomy. The histological study concluded that it was a serous cystadenoma of ovary and uterine myomatosis.

Keywords : giant ovarian cyst; uterine myomatosis; serous ovarian cystadenoma.
