Abstract

This article presents a case of left ovarian teratoma in a young child. Prompt diagnosis was made using real-time ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and laparoscopy. The latter was used for performing tumor enucleation. We recommend that laparoscopy precede laparotomy and be done more routinely in the young patient.
