Conclusion

The patient was referred to the gynecologist. The calcified masses proved to be bilateral benign calcified ovarian fibromas. The left ovary and tumor were completely removed. The tumor on the right side was also removed but the right ovary was saved. The patient told us that her mother also had ovarian tumors removed at a fairly young age. Calcified ovarian fibromas have been reported in Gorlin syndrome and Sotos syndrome.
