Abstracts

Serous tumors occur most commonly in the ovaries and rarely in the para tubal region. Simple serous cysts / fimbrial cysts are the most common cystic lesions found in the para ovarian region. Cystic neoplasms are rare in this site, and bilateral serous neoplasms in this site have not yet been reported. Hence we report an unusual case of bilateral serous cystadenoma of a para tubal region.

Case Report: A 43-year-old nulligravid woman presented for evaluation of her primary infertility with lower abdominal pain.Intra-operatively bilateral cysts, independent of the ovaries were found. Histopathology revealed a bilateral para tubalserous cystadenoma.

Conclusion: This case is presented for its rarity and to emphasise the need to explore the possibility of its etiologic association for infertility.
