This paper reports a case of a 42 year old female patient who presented with a large multi septate, predominantly cystic ovarian mass with elevated CA-125 levels. A diagnosis of malignant ovarian tumour was made on grounds of pre operative investigations and radical surgery was planned. Histopathological examination however revealed an ovarian fibroma with cystic change reinforcing the non specificity of CA-125 as a marker of ovarian malignancy and establishing the importance of a proper histopathological examination even in the most obvious of cases.
