A 29 year female presented with epigastric pain with bilious vomiting since 1 1/2 years. This patient was diagnosed as a case of Peutz-Jegher's syndrome based on evidence of the characteristic mucocutaneous pigmentation which was present since birth and intestinal hamartomatous polyposis. There was an associated unilateral ovarian cystadenoma which is a rare association and which highlights the importance of a gynaecologic examination in female patients with Peutz-Jegher's syndrome.
