Genital tuberculosis involving the ovary in a non-immunocompromised individual is rare. We report a case of coexisting ovarian serous cystadenoma and tuberculosis in a 29-year-old Indian woman. Clinical examination revealed the presence of an abdominal mass suspicious for ovarian neoplasm. Histopathological evaluation revealed ovarian neoplasm and concomitant tuberculosis. To the best of our knowledge, and after an extensive search of the literature, the coexistence of benign ovarian neoplasm and tuberculosis has not been previously documented.
