Meigs̓ syndrome is a rare clinical entity consisting of a triad of ascites, pleural effusion, and benign ovarian tumour. The co-existence of Meigs̓ syndrome and pregnancy is even more infrequent. This report is of a pregnant woman with Meigs̓ syndrome. The superior role of magnetic resonance imaging over ultrasonography in establishing the ovarian origin of a large pelvic mass in the presence of a gravid uterus is also presented and discussed.





梅格斯氏綜合徵(Meigs̓ syndrome)很少見,病人會出現腹水、胸腔積液及良性卵巢纖維瘤的症 狀。妊娠期中出現梅格斯氏綜合徵更為罕有。本文報告的病例顯示,在子宮內有胎兒的情況下能找 出盆腔內腫瘤是來自卵巢的,磁共振影像比超聲更能發揮作用。
