A Case of Ovarian Fibromatosis and Massive Ovarian Oedema Associated With Intra-Abdominal Fibromatosis, Sclerosing Peritonitis and Meig’s Syndrome

Abstract

Purpose:To discuss a case of ovarian fibromatosis/massive ovarian oedema, intra-abdominal fibromatosis, sclerosing peritonitis and Meig’s syndrome. To review the reported therapeutic options.Patients: Case report of a 27-year-old female with the combined pathology of ovarian fibromatosis/massive ovarian oedema, intra-abdominal fibromatosis, sclerosing peritonitis and Meig’s syndrome.Methods: This patient was treated with supportive care and cytotoxic chemotherapy.Results: Despite the benign nature of the ovarian pathology, this patient presented with life-threatening complications. Response to treatment was probably multi-factorial combining the effects of cytotoxics, use of steroids and good supportive care. She remains in complete remission 4 years post completion of chemotherapy.Conclusion: There are reports in the literature of ovarian fibromatosis/massive ovarian oedema, luteinised thecomas, intraabdominal fibromatosis and Meig’s syndrome occurring together in a variety of combinations. Treatment has been described with radiotherapy, cytotoxic and non-cytotoxic chemotherapy regimens. This case provides a link between ovarian fibromatosis/massive ovarian oedema, intra-abdominal fibromatosis, sclerosing peritonitis and Meig’s syndrome not previously described.
