Benign Cystic Teratoma (Dermoid cyst) is the most common Germ cell tumor; it rarely grows larger than 10 cm in diameter and usually occurs in young women with peak incidence between the ages of 20 and 40 years. We report a case of an unusually massive benign cystic teratoma measuring 25 × 25 × 15 cm and weighing approx. 7 kg, removed from a 53 year old post-menopausal female, multiparous woman who had been carrying the cyst over a period of two years. She underwent an exploratory laparotomy with ovarian mass resection total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Histopathological diagnosis confirmed the tumor to be a benign cystic teratoma.
