A 16-year-old unmarried female patient presented to the Subharti hospital with a lump in her abdomen that had been there for one year. For the previous two months, there had been abdominal pain. Constipation, intermittent fever, and vomiting were all present. A mass of around 25×25 cm (approximately) was found on per-abdominal examination, which was firm in consistency, non-tender, afebrile to touch with smooth borders, and restricted mobility. On the basis of the above mentioned examination and investigation, a diagnosis of ovarian cyst with typhoid immunoglobulin G (IgG) and immunoglobulin M (IgM) positive, dengue IgG with hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg) positive was made.
