TORRES P, Janina  y  INIGUEZ D, Rodrigo. Giant paraovarian cyst in childhood: Case report. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2015, vol.86, n.2, pp.117-120. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchipe.2015.04.023.

Introduction: Paraovarian cysts are very uncommon in children. Objective: To present a case of giant paraovarian cyst case in a child and its management using a modified laparoscopic-assisted technique. Case report: A 13-year-old patient with a 15 day-history of intermittent abdominal pain, located in the left hemiabdomen and associated with progressive increase in abdominal volume. Diagnostic imaging was inconclusive, describing a giant cystic formation that filled up the abdomen, but without specifying its origin. Laboratory tests and tumor markers were within normal range. Video-assisted transumbilical cystectomy, a modified laparoscopic procedure with diagnostic and therapeutic intent, was performed with a successful outcome. The histological study reported giant paraovarian cyst. Cytology results were negative for tumor cells. The patient remained asymptomatic during the postoperative follow-up. Conclusions: The video-assisted transumbilical cystectomy is a safe procedure and an excellent diagnostic and therapeutic alternative for the treatment of giant paraovarian cysts.
