A Case Report on Torsion of Dermoid Cyst in a Perimenopausal Woman

The Torsion of a Dermoid Cyst in a Perimenopausal Woman is the subject of this case study. Mature cystic teratomas are responsible for 20% to 30% of all ovarian tumours. Patients between the ages of 20 and 40 are the most likely to develop them, and they are usually asymptomatic. Cancer is more common in the perimenopausal and postmenopausal groups. The authors describe a case of dermoid cyst torsion in a 45-year-old perimenopausal woman who presented with acute stomach pain. A 45-year-old perimenopausal woman complained of a lower stomach ache that lasted 8 hours and 3-4 episodes of vomiting. Palpation of an abdomino-pelvic mass comparable to the size of a 28-week-pregnant uterus revealed a regular, firm to cystic, painful mass. On abdominal ultrasonography, a right ovarian cyst measuring 12.9×12.8×10.1 cm was detected. A complete abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo oopherectomy were performed. A developed cystic teratoma was discovered during a histological examination. Although mature cystic teratomas are uncommon beyond 40 years of age, particularly in perimenopausal women, and are frequently malignant in that age range, they might present at an unusually young age of 45 years and be benign, as in this case.
