Massive ovarian tumors are rarely encountered in our clinical practices and the most common reason is ignorance about the pathology and its sequences. Many complications are associated with it starting from the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative period. Here we are reporting a case of massive bilateral ovarian tumor weighing 35.4 kg (weighted after removal). She underwent a successful operation and discharged from the hospital on tenth postoperative day. Histopathology examination has revealed papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma of one ovary and borderline mucinous tumor of another ovary.
