We report a case of a sixth-month-pregnant 37-year-old woman with abdominal pain with the presence of a dermoid cyst of the left ovary. The diagnostic work-up required a multi-modality imaging approach. In particular, US and MR examinations were initially performed but resulted with an inconclusive outcome of a final diagnosis. Hence, a CT scan was successively used to formulate lesion characterization. Thus, integrated imaging approach would be recommended.

Abstract

We report a case of a sixth-month-pregnant 37-year-old woman with abdominal pain with the presence of a dermoid cyst of the left ovary. The diagnostic work-up required a multi-modality imaging approach. In particular, US and MR examinations were initially performed but resulted with an inconclusive outcome of a final diagnosis. Hence, a CT scan was successively used to formulate lesion characterization. Thus, integrated imaging approach would be recommended.
