We present the case of a 28-year-old woman with no relevant previous surgical or medical history. The patient was addressed for the removal of a right ovarian mass. She presented with dysmenorrhea and occasional dyspareunia. There were no other symptoms. Her physical examination showed a right adnexal mass to the vaginal touch. Preoperative work-up included a pelvic ultrasound, which showed a tumor apparently originating from the right ovary, of solid homogeneous appearance. MRI confirmed the presence of the solid mass, measuring approximately 6cm. No other pathological findings were present in the rest of the abdominal cavity. Tumor markers were negative. The patient had not completed childbearing and desired a conservative surgical approach. The different aspects of the surgical management were explained, including the possibility of performing an oophorectomy if no healthy ovarian tissue could be identified.
