Abstract

Background The presence of a rare lesion for pediatric population, encountered in twins, as far as we know, is an exceptional event. The event made the management of a pathology, for which there are no guidelines in the pediatric field, even more delicate. Case report Two twin sisters came to our attention, a short time after each other, due to the presence of a voluminous abdominal mass. After complete resection, the histological diagnosis was that of a paraovarian cystoadenofibroma. Discussion In pediatric surgery being minimally invasive is mandatory. However in selected cases the only objective, especially speaking of pediatric patients, ais to be radical and to protect the adnexal structures.
