SANABRIA, Charles; ROJAS, Liliana; GONZALEZ, Gerardo  and  MONTIEL, María. Teratoma grande de ovario derecho y el contralateral con cambios similares en adolescente: Reporte de un caso. Rev Obstet Ginecol Venez [online]. 2010, vol.70, n.1, pp. 67-70. ISSN 0048-7732.

The aim of this paper is to describe the case of a 17 years of age diagnosed with a big ovarian teratoma right (42x35x19 cm and weight of 3 450 g) and contralateral with similar pathological changes. We practiced right oophorosalpingectomy and left ovarian wedge verified similar pathological changes. The two-year follow-up was satisfactory. It is important to suspect this form of presentation of ovarian tumors, especially in adolescence, as the diagnosis is often difficult so rare and because physical examination and complementary studies are inconclusive.

Keywords : Teratoma; Adolescent; Ovary.
