Vandana Menon, Bedaya Amro, Tasnim E.V. Keloth, Arnaud Wattiez, Maan Hachmi


Fetus in fetu (FIF) is an extremely rare condition in which a malformed fetus is found most commonly in the abdomen of a living twin. We report a case of FIF in a young adult woman, which presented as a twisted ovarian cyst and was successfully managed by laparoscopy. This is the first reported case of FIF with an acute presentation, the first case in an adult ovary and the first to be managed successfully by laparoscopy. The excised ovarian mass was diagnosed as FIF with benign teratoma based on histopathological examination and radiography.
