Mature cystic teratomas of the ovary, also known as dermoid cysts, are the most frequent benign ovarian tumors in young women with a characteristic appearance on imaging [1-3]. Their diagnosis is usually made on imaging by ultrasound, and confirmation by MRI and sometimes CT scan. It presents as a mass with a mixed fat and cystic component with calcifications and remnants of embryonic tissue in the form of a central nodule or Rokitansky protuberance (hair) [1,2]. Figure 1 shows a heterogeneous well-bounded oval formation with a liquid level in T1 hyposignal, T2 hypersignal and fat (in T1 and T2 hyper signal fading on the fat suppression sequence), with a heterogeneous central nodule containing a part in asignal (calcifications) and another in T1 iso signal and T2 hyper signal without enhancement after gadolinium injection.
