Introduction: The most famous teratoma is related to mature cystic teratoma, which is generally called dermoid cyst because skin elements are dominant in them. This type of teratoma is a benign tumor that is the most common type of ovarian germ cell tumors. Therefore, our aim of this study was to report a case of vague abdominal pain due to mature cystic ovarian teratoma in the right lower quadrant (RLQ) and epigastric area.
Case introduction: 39-year-old woman with abdominal pain to the hospital??????? He visited in 1401. The ultrasound of this patient revealed that in the center and right side of the pelvis, the image of a 80 mm thick cyst containing an echogenic component suggesting calcification was evident, and next to it, another solid cystic lesion with thick septa and two solid components was seen. It was concluded that the above set of findings indicated teratoma.
Conclusion: Imaging methods have important role in timely diagnosis and treatment. In addition, this situation should be diagnosed immediately and appropriate imaging methods should be used to perform emergency surgery. In the case report of our study, abdominal and pelvic ultrasound, CT scan report, pathology and cancer diagnostic factors helped to diagnose this complication.
