Abstract

We present a case of a 52-year-old woman with exudative pleural effusion. Her workup revealed an ovarian tumor, and the effusion completely resolved after resection of the tumor. Pathology revealed granulosa cell tumor, which is an unusual cause of Meigs syndrome. This case shows the importance of considering abdominopelvic pathology in unsolved cases of pleural effusion.
