This video is Laparoscopic management of Torted Ovarian Dermoid Cyst in Pregnant Patient. Dermoid cyst (Mature cystic teratoma), the most common type of primordial germ cell ovarian tumors is usually benign and asymptomatic. It can be malignant in 5% of cases. The incidence of torsion in pregnant patients with ovarian cyst persisting during pregnancy is approximately 15%. Benign dermoid cysts/teratomas are the most frequent ovarian tumors, with an incidence ranging from 5% to 25% of all ovarian neoplasms [3]. They are of germ cell origin and composed of multiple types of tissue. Torsion of the cystic contents and ovary may occur in them, thus leading to vascular infarction and necrosis. Torsion of the pedicle has been reported to be the most frequent complication, occurring in 16.1% of cases [3]. Traditional risk factors for ovarian torsion are increased ovarian size, ovarian tumors, ovarian hyperstimulation, and pregnancy
