An ovarian cyst is the most common gynecological presentation. Majority are benign, with only a few being malignant. Epithelial ovarian tumors account for majority of ovarian neoplasm which usually present with vague symptoms of abdominal pain or asymptomatic and are detected incidentally. Spontaneous rupture of cystic tumors is an unusual presentation. We report here a case of ruptured serous borderline tumor in a young female.
