Dermoid cysts are considered the most common ovarian cysts in adolescents and pregnant women. In rare cases, they can attain a huge size. Paratubal cysts are also common in adolescents. They are usually simple cysts present in the broad ligament. In this case, we report a giant dermoid cyst with ipsilateral paratubal serous cystadenoma discovered during pregnancy of a 20-year-old primigravida. Both cysts were managed conservatively, and then removed successfully at the time of cesarean section by cystectomy.
