Abstract
Meigs' syndrome is characterized by the pleural effusion and ascites in patients with solid benign ovarian tumors and the resolution of the effusions after resection of the tumor. The tumor secretes a large amount fluid, possibly aggravated by lymphatics and venous obstruction of its pedicle by the relatively large tumor. Meigs' syndrome can resemble a metastatic pelvic carcinoma on its presentation, but the progression is more favorable when the syndrome is associated with a benign ovarian tumor. A case of ovarian fibroma associated with ascites and pleural effusion is presented with the brief review of literatures.
Key Words: Meigs' syndrome, Ascites, Pleural effusion, Meigs'
