Abstract

Uterine Mullerian cyst is extremely rare and the diagnosis is made by histological analysis. We report a case of a huge cyst which was initially regarded as ovary cyst or cystic degeneration of uterine myoma in 46-year-old woman. She was admitted due to tender palpable lower abdominal mass and total abdominal hysterectomy was performed. Histologically, the cyst was lined by unilayer (unilocular) ciliated columnar epithelial cells. Immunostains for PAS and mucicarmine showed negative results.
