Abstract

Huge ovarian tumors are rarely seen in modern surgical practice. As health care education and access to hospitals have improved over the past 30 years, the number of these reports have become almost negligible. However, these huge ovarian tumors still present many challenge, even life-threatening risks due to severe cardiovascular, pulmonary, and circulatory problems, including technical difficulties of surgery, massive hemorrhage, and postoperative complications. A knowledge of the deranged physiology and its management may avert these complications. We present the case of a 21-year-old woman with huge ovarian tumor. The total weight of the tumor was 136 pounds (62 kg). She was treated surgically with good results.
