In a case that may be counted as first of its kind, a tumour weighing 17 kg was taken out from the abdomen of a 30-year-old woman suffering from a rare ovarian tumour (growing teratoma syndrome) by the doctors of All-India Institute of Medical Sciences. Experts claimed that it was the largest ovarian tumour removal in India till now and the case has been sent to be documented in Limca Book of Records. The biggest ovarian cyst removal in India till now mentioned in the Limca Book of Records is of 6.1 kg. N Devi, a native of Bihar was referred to AIIMS in December last year with huge abdominal tumour, which was growing rapidly and caused constant pain. The woman had developed a small cystic tumour in her right ovary, for which she had undergone ovarian cystectomy in Bihar in 2014, said Neerja Bhatla from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, AIIMS. “However, even after chemotherapy, the mass inside the abdomen kept growing progressively. In fact within 8-9 months the tumour had occupied whole of her abdomen and doctors had given up on the case,” Bhatla added.
