Benign cystic ovarian teratoma is the most common ovarian neoplasm accounting for 10-25% of all ovarian tumours. They may remain asymptomatic and may be discovered as an incidental finding on ultrasound of pelvis or can present as acute abdomen in case of torsion (16%), infection (1%) or rupture. It can rupture into the bladder, small bowel, rectum, sigmoid colon, vagina, anterior abdominal wall and peritoneal cavity[1]. Symptom develop once complication set in. Invasion into adjacent viscera such as the rectum, the small bowel, the peritoneum and the Urinary bladder is extremely rare. We present a rare case of mature cystic teratoma perforating into the urinary bladder. Presenting with irritative lower Urinary tract symptoms characterized by Urgency, frequency, dysuria, poor urinary stream.
