Abstract

The overall incidence of ovarian tumours in pregnancy is 2.4-5.7% and because of the asymptomatic nature of ovarian mass it is usually diagnosed in late pregnancy when there may be symptoms produced by it. Due to the similarity of symptoms, there has always been perplexity when a patient presents with mass per abdomen in pregnancy. During pregnancy, mild hydronephrosis is considered a normal phenomenon and may be present in up to 90% of pregnancies. Dilation is usually more pronounced on the right kidney and after mid-pregnancy. Here, we present a case which presented as a huge abdominal mass in pregnancy which was mistaken to be an ovarian mass in pregnancy and then later diagnosed as pyonephrosis.
