A 30-year-old nulligravida was referred under suspicion of large subserosal myoma. T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging revealed multilobulated solid mass in the left lower abdomen measuring 16 cm in longitudinal diameter. The ovarian surface was covered with a marked T2-hypointense thick rim called "black garland sign," forming multiple nodular masses ranging from 1 to 5 cm in diameter in some portions of the bilateral ovaries. By laparoscopic-assisted minilaparotomy, the stalk of pedunculated mass originating from the left ovarian hilum was excised, followed by carrying out of the body after in-bag morcellation using a surgical scalpel. Right ovarian exophytic nodular masses larger than 1 cm were excised using monopolar electrode needle. Pathological examination of excised right and left masses showed fibroblast-like spindle cell proliferation with collagenous stroma; however, differences between right and left masses cannot be distinguished on a histological level. Postoperative diagnosis was ovarian fibromatosis coexisting with large pedunculated fibroma.
