Giant ovarian cysts mimicking ascites due to infection of pre-existing small ovarian cyst have not been reported in the literature. Ovarian Cyst is a common problem in females but giant ovarian cyst is a rare entity in present era of better imaging modalities. But due to poverty, illiteracy and due to asymptomatic nature in early stage, cases of giant ovarian cysts are still reported sporadically in literature. Huge ovarian cysts mimic ascites clinically and ultrasonographicaly. We describe a patient who had sudden increase in size of pre-existing ovarian cyst with sudden huge abdominal distension. Clinically and ultrasonographicaly she was diagnosed a case of ascites but later on proved a case of giant ovarian cyst on computerized tomography (CT).
