Mature cystic teratomas are ovarian neoplasms derived from two to three germ cell layers i.e. ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm. Ovarian teratomas are usually benign tumours of the reproductive age group. They usually have right-sided predisposition. However, only 10-20% of these neoplasms may have bilateral presentation. Here, we present a rare case of bilateral mature cystic teratoma of ovaries in a 32 years old multigravida female who presented with pain lower abdomen from one month. Ultrasonography showed bilateral solid-cystic adnexal lesions along with calcifications in the left adnexal mass. Serum level of CA-125 was within normal range. Laparoscopic bilateral oophorectomy was done along with bilateral tubal ligation. The histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of bilateral mature cystic teratoma of the ovaries.
