Objectives: To report the occurrence of a rare case of a huge benign ovarian tumour (mucinous cystadenoma) in Jazan city, Saudi Arabia.Patients: Our reported case was a middle-aged Saudi woman presented with marked abdominal distension and discomfort at the gynaecology clinic of Jazan General Hospital, Jazan city, Saudi Arabia.Methods: The data were collected by history-taking, clinical examination, laboratory investigations, transabdominal ultrasonographic examination, and by histo-pathological study of the excised surgical specimen.Results: The case was reported as a rare massive ovarian mucinous cystadenoma.Conclusions: This case report emphasizes the significance of thorough evaluation of all women presented with vague abdominal pains. Although the condition is extremely rare, it is a potentially dangerous in its massive form if not timely diagnosed and managed properly. With the increasing awareness of such conditions, more and more cases could be detected and reported early. © 2010 Kamel; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
