A 40 year old patient with prior hysterectomy for leiomyomas at 30 years of age, presents with fullness and fluttering in her abdomen. On physical exam, her abdomen was distended and free fluid was noted. An abdominal pelvic CT scan showed thickening of the vaginal cuff as well as multiple soft tissue masses throughout the retroperitoneum and mesentery and a confluent group of masses in the right pericolic gutter measuring up to 7.0 x 3.6 cm. The patient underwent excision of the masses as well as bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy.
