Meigs syndrome is a rare condition, defined as the coexistence of benign ovarian fibroma, ascites and pleural effusion. While, pseudo-Meigs syndrome is characterized by the co-existence of ascites, pleural effusion and pelvic tumor other than ovarian fibroma (both benign and malignant). For both these syndromes, surgical resection of the tumor is the only therapeutic choice, resulting in resolution of fluid accumulations. Here we present a case of mucinous cystadenoma ovary that presented as pseudomeig syndrome at a relatively young age of 23 years.
