Abstract
Meigs' syndrome is a benign ovarian tumor associated with ascites and pleural effusion. Elevated CA 125 in Meigs'syndrome is unusual clinical condition reported in few cases. We report here, a 49-year-old postmenopausal woman with right ovarian fibrothecoma with ascites, right pleural effusion and high serum levels of CA 125. Although postmenopausal women with ovarian tumor, ascites, pleural effusion, and elevation of CA 125 levels probably have malignant ovarian tumors, Meigs' syndrome must be considered in the differential diagnosis.
Key Words: Meigs' syndrome, CA 125, Ovary, Fibrothecoma
