Tuberculosis is a curable infectious disease which can mimic ovarian cancer. This case report illustrates that the association of a pelvic mass with elevated CA125 is not necessarily suggestive of ovarian malignancy. A 22-Year-old woman presenting with bilateral ovarian masses and an elevated CA 125 underwent an exploratory laparotomy to search for ovarian tumor. The final pathology diagnosis was ovarian tuberculosis without pulmonary involvement. Tuberculosis is a differential diagnosis to consider in patients with a pelvic mass because of the lack of pathognomonic clinical and biological signs.
