Massive edema of the ovary is a rare condition found in young women as a result of partial or intermittent torsion of the ovary. Differentiation of this entity from tumors of the ovary is important to prevent overtreatment. Organ-preserving surgical treatment is indicated as the correct approach to management. We present a case of massive edema of the ovary associated with post partum involution of the female genital tract and discuss the clinical features in the light of the known literature.
