In early June, a 34-year-old patient was transferred to one of the hospitals in Podolsk. She was scheduled for a planned operation: removal of a cyst on the right ovary. And when the surgeons removed the tumor, they found in it… a skull.

“A cyst 8 cm in diameter was removed from the patient’s right ovary, containing hair, remains of skull bones and fat,” said chief physician Alexander Skobennikov.

And although to the average citizen what was described seems like a kind of medieval horror, the doctors were not particularly surprised. This type of tumor is called a teratoma. This is a congenital pathology that occurs during embryonic development. Nowadays, it is often diagnosed when the fetus is just developing. However, it also happens, as in the case of a resident of Podolsk, that the cyst remains in the body and attracts attention already in adulthood. A teratoma can contain hair, muscle tissue, bone tissue, hair, teeth, and more complex organs such as eyes or limbs.

“Operations of this type are high-tech, because the removal of these tumors in patients of reproductive age must be carried out while preserving healthy ovarian tissue as much as possible. This requires a certain and very careful surgical technique,” ​​continues Alexander Skobennikov.

The surgeons managed to preserve this patient’s reproductive function: in the future she will be able to plan a pregnancy. Now the little girl is fine and has already been discharged.
