A rare case of Meigs syndrome in pregnancy with bilateral ovarian masses

Veena Gupta, Nidhi Sachan

Abstract


Meig’s syndrome is defined as the triad of ascitis, pleural effusion, along with benign ovarian tumour. Ovarian fibroma represents approximately 2-5% of the surgically removed ovarian tumours and Meig’s syndrome occurs in only 1-2% of these cases, thus contributing to its rare occurrence. Here we report an unusual case of pregnancy with Meig’s syndrome with ovarian fibroma on one side and large serous cystadenoma on other side. We present this case to emphasize the importance of this rare entity while dealing with any case of ascites.
