Teratomas are the most common ovarian neoplasms that occur especially during the reproductive age. We report a benign cystic teratoma
with an unusual size. In a 17 years old patient, ultrasound examination revealed a mass of 37x37x37 cm. The mass had originated from the
right ovary, filled the full abdomen and pushed the diaphragm to the superior. The patient underwent right salpingo-oopherectomy. The weight of the mass was 11.5 kg, which accounted for approximately 16% of the preoperative total body weight. Pathologic examination revealed benign cystic teratoma.
