Although the incidence of bilateral dermoid cysts varies from 10-15%, multiple
ovarian mature cystic teratomas in the same ovary are very rare. A young
30 years old nulligravida, married for 5 years presented to our outdoor with
intermittent pain hypogastrium for the last 3 months. The case was diagnosed
on Ultrasonography to be bilateral multiple terratomas due to presence of
hyper-echoic solid components in the cysts. On Laparotomy ovaries were
conserved & three dermoid cysts were enucleated from both ovaries. Diagnosis
was confirmed on hitopathology as dermoid cysts .Complete clearance
of both ovaries at the time of excision of demoid is essential to nullify the risk
