The ovarian cysts are one of the most common affections for females. Besides non-neoplastic functional cysts (follicular or luteal) with relatively small sizes, the neoplastic types, generally benign and that can be ascribed to serous tumors, of 10-15 cm or even bigger should be included. Nowdays, these neoformations are diagnosed relatively early, before they become of big dimensions, even if often they present few symptoms. Then it seems to be interesting to report a case recently observed of an ovarian cyst of 35x45x50 cm and weighing 23 kg in 29-year-old woman.
