Abstract  
Mature cystic teratomas, often referred to as dermoid cysts, are the most common germ cell tumors of the ovary in women of reproductive age. The gross pathologic appearance of a dermoid cysts is characteristic. Hair follicles, skin glands, muscle, and other tissues lie within the cyst wall. We present a case of a dermoid cyst ovarian tumor in a 24-your-old patient with a tooth lying on each wall. The mass was laparoscopically removed by ovarian cystectomy.
Key words:  Ovarian dermoid cyst      Teeth      Cyst wall
