Abstract
Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome is a rare syndrome associated with struma ovarii, yolk sac tumor, ovarian carcinoma, leiomyoma and tuberculosis, which is combined with ascites and pleural effusion. The cause and pathophysiology of Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome are uncertain. The diagnosis is done by characteristic clinical finding. We have experienced a case of Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome associated with uterine smooth muscle tumor of uncertain malignant potential and elevated CA-125, so report this case.
Key Words: Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome
