Complex solid and cystic pelvic mass containing fat and two teeth in keeping with a mature ovarian teratoma. There was a small subcapsular fat-containing lesion in the right lobe of the liver with wall calcification, in keeping with a subcapsular deposit of fat from a prior rupture of the pelvic teratoma. Similar lesions were identified in other subcapsular regions of the liver.
Rupture of mature ovarian teratoma is rare and can result in chemical peritonitis.
