AbstractParaovarian/paratubal cysts constitute 5-20% of all adnexal lesions and typically originate from the paramesonephric or Müllerian duct. The primary epithelial tumors arising from paraovarian cysts account for 25% of the cases, but giant cystadenomas of paraovarian origin are extremely uncommon during childhood and adolescence with very few cases reported in the literature. We present the case of a 15-year-old female that presented with a bulky mass in the abdomen and pelvis. An initial clinical and radiological examination indicated an ovarian cyst measuring ∼25x20 cm. However, explorative laparotomy revealed a giant paratubal cyst that was successfully treated with complete excision using fertility-sparing surgery. Histopathological examination was consistent with a serous cystadenoma. The postoperative course was uneventful and the girl was discharged on the seventh postoperative day. At the follow-up of six months, the patient was doing well. Due to their rarity and enormous size, the proper diagnosis and adequate management of giant paratubal cystadenomas are challenging. A complete excision of cystadenoma with preservation of adnexa represents a desirable treatment modality in adolescent females and should be attempted whenever possible.
