The authors report a case of ovarian hemangioma, a rare tumor of the female genital tract that mimics malignancy. A 23-year-old woman underwent exploratory laparoscopy for a 10-cm right ovarian mass found incidentally. CA125 serum levels were elevated and ascites was noted before surgery. Under suspicion of malignancy, laparoscopic cystectomy and frozen biopsy were performed with the histopathological result of ovarian hemangioma. The authors illustrate an unusual case of this ovarian tumor and its clinicopathological correlation.
