      A 37-year-old woman (gravida 0, virgin) who was a hepatitis B carrier with a medical history of childhood asthma consulted our department because of a gradual increase in the size of left ovarian mass that was diagnosed 3 years ago; she had recently developed menorrhagia. Transabdominal ultrasound revealed a unilocular cyst measuring 7.5 × 6.7 cm, with diffuse homogeneous ground-glass echoes in the left ovary (Fig. 1), suggesting endometrioma. The level of tumor marker antigen carbohydrate 125 was 56.8 U/mL. Therefore, surgery was scheduled.
