BACKGROUND. Giant paratubaric cysts are mostly benign tumors, with incidence of 10%. The incidence rate of these neoplasms is 2% to 3% including cystitis, papillary carcinoma and serous papillary neoplasms, the course of disease begins with abdominal pain  or increase in size of  lower hemiabdomen, becoming complicated in approximately 3% of cases (1).  The diagnosis is made with transabdominal or transvaginal ultrasound,  abdominal and pelvis tomography   or   magnetic resonance. The treatment of  small cysts is expectant and the large size is surgical way (2) . We present the case of a 35-year-old woman who began her current condition three years after her pregnancy, with urination urgency, abdominal pain and sensation of abdominal mass,  who  was diagnosed and protocolized in a public second level hospital  in Mexico City, treated with opened surgery , and good postoperative evolution.
