Benign, mucinous cystadenomatas account for 15% all ovarian neoplasms and of these, giant variants occur rarely. Ovarian masses, particularly mucinous cystadenomas, are among the largest tumours known. Surgery is the treatment of choice for a large mucinous cystadenoma. In this report we present an interesting case of an ovarian mucinous cystadenoma weighing 40 kg. Surgical treatment was suc­cessful and the patient adjusted well to her postoperative body image.
