A case of Meigs' syndrome is reported. The patient presented with: hydrothorax, ascites, benign ovarian tumor (thecoma) and increased serum levels of CA 125. Ovarian thecoma is a rare tumor, accounting for less than 1% of all ovarian tumors. When associated with Meigs' syndrome, it can produce a clinical picture similar to that of ovarian carcinoma, but the prognosis is much more favourable. The condition was managed by bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy and hysterectomy. The ascites and hydrothorax disappeared spontaneously after removal of the ovarian tumor and CA 125 level decreased.
