Abstract

Hypothyroidism may manifest as large ovarian cyst formation with precocious puberty in young prepubertal girls, which frequently regress upon starting thyroxin suplemntation. We present a case report of 10 year old girl who had undergone unnecessary laparoscopic cystectomy for bilateral large ovarian cyst as the diagnosis of hypothyroidism was missed. She again had recurrence of bilateral ovarian cyst which regressed upon thyroxin supplementation.
