Background: It has been shown that Carbohydrate antigen (CA) 125 and CA 19-9
tumor markers are useful for diagnosis and follow up of ovarian carcinoma.
Case: In this case, we reported the high level of CA-125 and CA 19-9 with large
right ovarian intact endometrioma and extensive involvement of omentum.
Conclusion: Human Epididymis protein (HE4) and Risk of ovarian malignancy
algorithm (ROMA) can be useful in differentiation between malignancies and
benign pathologies with a good sensitivity and specificity value.
Human epididymis protein 4 (HE4); Risk of ovarian malignancy algorithm (ROMA).
