Large abdominal cystic masses: Report of seven cases.
J Pak Med Assoc Jan ;66(2):226-8.
Cystic abdominal tumours are encountered quite often and are diagnosed more frequently due to the availability of better imaging possibilities. Presentation of huge cysts has become rare as most of them are diagnosed and treated early. But we still have patients with enlarged abdominal cysts; majority with cases of serous cystadenomas of the ovary. Absolute diagnosis is only possible with laparotomy and histopathological findings. In this report, seven patients with enlarged gynaecological or mesenteric cystic masses and gastroenterological symptoms are reported. Four of these cases were serous cystadenoma, two were mucinous cystadenoma and one was a paratubal cyst. Gynaecological tumours and mesenteric cysts should not be missed in female patients showing gastrointestinal symptoms.
