A case of struma ovarii with ascites and hydrothorax is reported. This unusual rare association is labeled as pseudo-Meigs' syndrome to differentiate it from conventional Meigs' syndrome in which the ovarian tumor is a fibroma. We discuss the diagnostic problems of this condition, and present a brief review of the reported cases in the literature.
