Ovarian tumors may occur in female fetuses and these are diagnosed mainly by prenatal ultrasonography. Ovarian tumors may be benign or malignant. In newborn and children, ovarian tumors have higher cure rate. Though most of the tumors are benign, due to enlargement of cystic follicle but early diagnosis and follow up should be taken under consideration to prevent ovarian torsion and to improve the prognosis of malignancy. The rarity of this condition and controversies in management has prompted me to discuss this case.
