Abstract

High CA-125 levels have been strongly associated with ovarian malignancy. But due to nonspecific nature of this tumor marker it has been found to be raised to high levels above 1000u/Ml even in some non neoplastic conditions which have to be kept in mind. A young woman was found to have very high Ca125 levels of 3500u/Ml after rupture of endometrioma. Endometrioma, pelvic inflammatory disease, abdominal tuberculosis are some of the nonneoplastic conditions associated with very high levels of Ca125.
