Massive edema of the ovary is a rare benign entity affecting young women. Most cases are thought to result from venous and lymphatic obstruction. The ultrasonographic appearance is nonspecific and can mimic neoplasia, and the definitive diagnosis requires histological examination. Massive ovarian edema should be suspected in women in reproductive age group presenting with solid enlargement of the ovary. Awareness of this rare entity among surgeons and pathologists is essential in the diagnosis and to avoid unnecessary oophorectomy. We describe one such rare case of massive ovarian edema in a 22-year-old female.
