We present a case of mature cystic teratoma of the ovary containing numerous spherules floating in the cyst. Sonography and MR imaging revealed spherical structures, which is thought to be pathognomonic for a cystic teratoma. Microscopically, the pathological report confirmed this finding. The cyst appears as a massive tumor in a reproductive age patient.
