Isolated Fluorodeoxyglucose Avid Right Pleural Deposits/Effusion on an F-18 Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography in Patients with Ovarian Cancer - Are they almost Certainly Metastatic? An Extrapolation of Atypical Meigs' Syndrome.

Indian J Nucl Med 2019 Jan-Mar;34(1):42-44

Department of Surgical Oncology, VPS Lakeshore Hospital, Kochi, Kerala, India.

Majority of ovarian cancer (OC) patients are usually diagnosed at advanced stage and present with peritoneal spread/ascites. Some patients develop pleural deposits/effusion secondary to transdiaphragmatic spread of peritoneal disease/ascites. However, pleural deposits/effusion from OC in the absence of peritoneal disease/ascites are very rare. Read More

The Great Mimicker: Pseudo-Meig Syndrome in a Pregnant Patient. A Review.

Ultrasound Q 2018 Mar;34(1):23-28

Meig syndrome is the triad of benign ovarian tumor, ascites, and pleural effusion. Pseudo-Meig syndrome mimics the Meig syndrome triad; however, in pseudo-Meig syndrome, the ovarian tumor usually represents a primary malignancy or metastases. Differentiating Meig from pseudo-Meig syndrome is challenging both clinically and with diagnostic imaging but is important because prognoses for these distinct entities are drastically different.

with Pseudo-Meigs' Syndrome and Raised Cancer Antigen-125 Levels Masquerading as an Ovarian Carcinoma Case report and literature review.

Sultan Qaboos Univ Med J 2017 May 20;17(2):e229-e233. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital, New Delhi, Delhi, India.

The monodermal teratoma is a rare ovarian tumour; however, presenting with pseudo-Meigs' syndrome and raised cancer antigen (CA)-125 levels is even rarer. In elderly patients, this presentation can potentially lead to a misdiagnosis of a malignant ovarian carcinoma, resulting in unnecessary extensive surgery. We report a 55-year-old female who presented to the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital, New Delhi, India, in 2016 with progressive abdominal discomfort, fatigue and abdominal distention.

Enormous ovarian fibroma with elevated Ca-125 associated with Meigs' syndrome. Presentation of a rare case.

Eur J Gynaecol Oncol 2016 ;37(1):142-3

In medicine, Meigs' syndrome is the triad of ascites, pleural effusion, and benign ovarian tumor (fibroma, Brenner tumour, and occasionally granulosa cell tumour). It resolves after the resection of the tumor. Because the transdiaphragmatic lymphatic channels are larger in diameter on the right, the pleural effusion is classically on the right side. Read More

Pleural Effusion in Meigs' Syndrome-Transudate or Exudate?: Systematic Review of the Literature.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2015 Dec;94(49):e2114

From the Department of Internal Medicine, Pneumonology and Allergology, Medical University of Warsaw, Poland (RK, MM-W, PK, M-ZK, JK, RC); and Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN.

Although Meigs' syndrome is regarded as a well-defined entity, contradictory data on pleural fluid characteristics have been presented, with some papers classifying it as a transudate, whereas others stating that it is an exudate.The aims of the study were: (1) to evaluate pleural fluid characteristics in patients with Meigs' syndrome and (2) to analyze the prevalence of transudative and exudative pleural effusion in relation to the applied definition of the syndrome.We performed a search through medical databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, SCOPUS, and GOOGLE SCHOLAR) to identify papers on Meigs' syndrome published between 1940 and 2013.

Department of Gynecological Oncology and Gynecology, Medical University of Lublin, Lublin, Poland.

Presence of fibrothecoma is not usually accompanied by elevated levels of tumor markers. In recent years, however, there have been isolated reports of fibrothecoma and Meigs' syndrome, accompanied by an increase in tumor markers. We present a case of fibrothecoma with Meigs' syndrome and elevated levels of both CA-125 (cancer antigen 125) and HE-4 (human epididymis protein 4). Read More
