Abstract

A 15-year-old female with primary amenorrhea, obesity, and insulin resistance, was admitted for further examination due to large pelvic masses found during a transabdominal ultrasound, which was performed while assessing the amenorrhea. The magnetic resonance imaging showed bilateral, multifocal fibrosing tumors, originating from both ovaries. A laparotomy was performed, during which the right ovary masses were enucleated and the left adnexectomy was performed. A histological examination of the tissue material revealed bilateral ovarian fibromas with calcification and ossification. The genetic examination confirmed the diagnosis of Gorlin syndrome. The patient recovered well, and on the first follow-up 1 month after surgery, already experienced her first spontaneous menstrual bleeding.
