Mature cystic teratoma is a benign tumor of the ovary arising from germ cells. It can occur at any age but, commonly in patients between 20 and 40 years. It is usually unilateral. The size of the tumor is relatively small at the time of diagnosis. An unusual presentation of mature cystic teratoma considering age of the patient, diagnosis and features of the tumor, is described, which to our knowledge has not been reported before in the literature.
