Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A case of a non-functioning ovarian fibroma with extensive calcification in a young Ugandan female is described. Ovarian fibromas occasionally may be bilateral and associated with benign ascites and pleural effusion called Meigs' syndrome or related to a rare hereditary condition known as Gorlin's syndrome. Rarely if functioning, the tumour may produce hormones to cause diabetes mellitus or hypoglycaemia or secrete carbohydrate antigen 125 to clinically simulate ovarian carcinoma.
