Ovarian torsion is a common emergency in gynecologic surgical practice. In adults the most common cause is an ovarian teratoma. A middle aged female came with acute abdominal pain which on radiology was suggestive of torsion. On histopathological examination, benign mature cystic teratoma was identified in one of the cysts seen in the ovariotomy specimen. This case emphasizes the variable presentations of ovarian teratoma. On histopathology we strongly recommend that all the large and small cysts should be dissected properly to look for the contents in cases of ovarian torsion.
