We hereby report a case of huge MCT in a 11-year-old premenarchal girl who presented with abdominal pain and lump. Ovarian tumor in adolescent may have malignant potential and requires appropriate and vigilant preoperative work-up and counseling for optimal management with concern of preservation of fertility and potential for childbearing.
