Imaging on a busy weekend evening in your Emergency department, you see a young female who presents with abdominal distension and dyspnea. After your initial investigations you find out she has both pleural effusion and ascites in her abdominal and pelvis CT scan with a suspicious mass lesion in her left ovary. One of your top differential diagnosis is ovarian malignancy but you remember something you read once in one of the textbooks about a condition called: “Meigs syndrome”. “She is young, and I hope it’s not cancer. Can this be Meigs?” You think and with the bottom of your heart you wish it is. “But it’s very rare and I have never seen one?” you ask yourself.
