Abstract

We report a rare case of Graves' disease associated with struma ovarii. A 26-year-old Japanese woman had preexisting Graves' disease and was positive for TSH receptor antibody. She had been on antithyroid medication at presentation. She noted a mass in the lower left abdomen, which was diagnosed as a left struma ovarii by radiological work-up including computed tomogaphy, magnetic resonance imaging and scintigraphy. The surgically excised teratomatous tumor, containing cystic spaces with thyroid tissue, was histologically proved to be struma ovarii. Since thyroid function tests and TSH receptor antibody did not change after surgery, her hyperthyroidism was considered to be due to Graves' disease. Our case was diagnosed as struma ovarii before surgery using various imaging studies.
