AbstractIntroduction: Struma ovarii is a rare form of ovarian neoplasm and consists mainly of thyroid tissue. Ascites has been reported in approximately one-third of all the cases. However, the combination of struma ovarii and elevated CA-125 has rarely been reported. Materials and methods: We described a case of benign struma ovarii, presenting with the clinical features of ovarian cancer: large complex pelvic mass, gross ascites and markedly elevated serum CA-125 levels. Surgical excision of the ovarian mass was followed by rapid resolution of the ascites and reduction of the serum CA-125 level. Conclusion: Struma ovarii can mimic ovarian malignancy clinically, when presented with ascites and an elevated CA-125 level. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
