PRESENTATION OF CASE A 30 year old female patient presented with chronic dullaching abdominal pain since the past 3 years. There was no specific localization of pain. There was no fever or any significant medical history, and she was a non-diabetic and normotensive. The patient had no history of surgeries in the past. She was evaluated initially by ultrasonography, which showed a well-defined, thick walled heterogeneous solidcystic lesion arising from the right adnexa measuring approximately 10 x 7.8 x 10.3 cm in size (TR x AP x CC). The lesion also had few areas of calcification within. On colour doppler examination, the lesion showed no evidence of vascularity. The lesion could not be delineated separately from the right ovary
