A holistic and multidisciplinary approach is required for ovarian cancer diagnosis and management. Ovarian tumor diagnosis is based on clinical symptomatology followed by radiological confirmation. Tumor markers are considered just adjunct. Management of ovarian mass is surgical and intra -op frozen section aids in understanding the nature of the mass but histopathology is definitive. Ovarian torsion affects 2.5 to 7.4% of all ovarian tumors. The present case will highlight the destructive changes brought about by torsion which could ultimately result in missed tissue diagnosis.
