Abstract Massive ovarian tumors are rare and occur less frequently today. The management of a patient with a large ovarian tumor weighing 74 kg is described. Preoperative paracentesis was resorted to. A multidisciplinary team approach helped combat the various associated complications of supine hypotension, technically difficult surgery, massive blood and fluid replacement, postoperative ventilatory failure, and wound dehiscence.
