ABSTRACTOvarian mucinous cystadenoma accounts for approximately 15 % of benign ovarian neoplastic lesions and in 5 % of cases may be bilateral. It usually manifests in middle ages of life and they are rare in pediatric age and adolescence. The objective of this paper work is to deepen on the diagnosis and therapeutic state of this disease. A review of the topic was made and a case was presented because of the significant dimensions of the cyst. We present a 16-year-old girl who presented abdominal distension and pain in the right hemiabdomen for a month of evolution. Surgery was performed and a giant tumor on the left ovary was found. It weighed 10 kilograms, corroborating the histological diagnosis of mucinous ovarian cystadenoma. The patient evolved satisfactorily.
