Abstract

Background. The aim of this study is to inve¬stigate simili tudis and differences between thè Meigs' syndronie and Meigs' pseudosyndrome. The Meigs' syndrome is an uncommon disease that is characterized by benign ovarian tumor, ascites and pleural effusion. The Meigs' pseu¬dosyndrome is a seruous disease that is cha¬racterized by malignati! ovarian tumor, asci¬tes, pleural effusion. Methods. We have examined two cases: a case of Meigs' syndrome that is characterized by vo-mit, abdominal pain, ascites, hight scruni Ca 125 level; a case of Meigs' pseudosyndrome that is characterized by ovarian adenocarci-noma that is diagnosticated owing to ascites and pleural effusion. Conclusions. This study suggest that thè surgi-cal therapy have a very important role for thè complete remission of thè disease in thè Meigs' syndrome and for thè remission of ascites and pleural effusion in thè Meigs' pseudosyndrome. Key words: Meigs - Ovarian cancer.
