While ovarian cystic teratoma is one of the most common ovarian neoplasms, benign cystic teratoma of the omentum is a rare tumor. A 39 years old women was admitted for lower abdominal pain. Abdominal and pelvic examination revealed a goose egg sized mass in the left side of cul de sac. Ultrasonography showed 5x7 cm sized, ill-defined mixed echogenecity mass in cul de sac. At laparotomy, a 6.5x4.5x2 cm mass was found in the pelvic cavity with relation to right ovary. A 6.8x5x3.5 cm sized mass was found in the pelvic cavity, attached to the greater omentum with adhesion to the left side of cul de sac. Pathologic examination revealed typical findings for cystic teratoma in both sided lesions. We recently experienced a case which suggest mechanical separation of dermoid cyst from ovary by torsion and reported here with brief review with literautres.
