Abstract Background: CA125 levels in Meig’s syndrome can increase or be normal which an unusual laboratory condition is. In this paper, we present a case of Meigs’ syndrome associated with increased CA125 level due to ovarian fibroma / thecoma. Case presentation: A 50-year old Iranian woman presented with fever, abdominal pain and distention and in imaging assessment, a 90×109 mm heterogeneous pelvic mass with free abdominopelvic fluid was reported. Pleural effusion was detected in CXR. Aspiration of ascetic fluid showed no evidence of malignancy. CA125 level was greater than 600 IU/mL. The patient went under laparotomy in which a 120×100 mm mass was detected in her left adnexa attached to colon, bowels and bottom of pelvis. Histology reported ovarian fibro/ thecoma. The mass was resected and after that, the symptoms disappeared and CA125 level reached to 15 IU/mL. The patient had no problem after 18 months of follow up. Conclusion: Meigs’ syndrome should be considered at the differential diagnosis for a patient with pelvic mass, pleural effusion and ascites with normal cytology, increased CA125 levels.
