Malignancies of genital tract is a worrisome condition due to its aggressiveness and complicated treatment modality. Lesions of the genital tract mimicking malignancy have to be diagnosed preoperatively to avoid unnecessary extensive surgery. High index of suspicion is required from clinician, radiologist, and pathologist to accurately diagnose malignant mimicking lesions in preoperative period. We report a case of 40-year-old multiparous female with bilateral adnexal mass, peritoneal nodules, and ascites mimicking advanced ovarian malignancy, diagnosed to have a common benign treatable condition by histopathological examination. This article emphasizes on the need for thorough investigation to diagnose benign lesions that mimic malignancy.
