Abstract

Mature cystic teratomas, commonly known as dermoid cysts, are the most frequent ovarian tumors discovered during pregnancy. They are present in 0.3% of pregnancies from weeks 16-20 of gestation. The diagnosis of mature cystic teratomas during pregnancy presents the vexing problem of weighing the risks of surgery under general anesthetic against the risks of an untreated persistent adnexal mass.
