Introduction: Huge borderline ovarian tumour are rare in modern medicine because of the awareness, earlier medical consultation and available ultrasound facility even in rural area. Here we report a case of huge ovarian mass proved to be borderline malignant.
Case Report: A 38 years old female presented with abdominal distension of rapid onset within 3 months. On examination, there was a cystic mass of 30×20 cm arising from pelvis with variegated consistency. Ultrasound and CECT evaluation illustrated a well-defined cystic lesion with solid component arising from right ovary. With the working diagnosis of ovarian tumour, staging laparotomy was performed with total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo oophorectomy. Histopathological examination revealed the tumour as borderline mucinous cystadenocarcinoma of ovary, without any local spread.

Keywords: Borderline ovarian tumour, Mucinous, Laparotomy.
