Diagnosis of ovarian tumor during pregnancy presents a management dilemma. We herein report a case of huge ovarian cyst adenoma complicating pregnancy in a 25 years old gravida 3, previous two caesarian, presenting at 13 wks. pregnancy. She was referred from periphery for uterine size more than the period of gestation and ultrasound (USG) showing 25×12 cm ovarian cyst. USG was inconclusive of benign or borderline ovarian tumor. Neoadjuvent chemotherapy followed by cytoreductive surgery was planned. USG guided fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) was done before starting chemotherapy which suggested benign etiology. Management plan was changed to continuation of pregnancy and conservative surgery at 20 wks of pregnancy. Planned exploratory laparotomy with left sided salpingoophorectomy was done under general anesthesia at 22 wks. of gestation. Post-operative period was uneventful. Patient was delivered by LSCS at 38 wks. of gestation.

Keywords: ovarian cyst, pregnancy, management.
