Abstract

Diagnosis of Mullerian duct cyst is determined by histopathological examination. Describe a case of a mass descending per vaginum in a 28-year-old lady that was originally misdiagnosed as an elongation of the cervix's anterior lip. Under anaesthesia, carried out surgical intervention that included complete excision of the mass via a vaginal route.  Pathology result confirmed a benign Mullerian cyst histologically bordered by a single layer of ciliated columnar epithelial cells.
