Balls of fat-Dermoid Cyst

This is a case of mature ovarian teratoma with multiple fat balls seen as high signal on T1 weighted MRI images. The fat globules in literature have been described as being 1.5–2 cm in diameter and composed of cheese-like sebum and hairs.   In the reported cases, fat globules have occurred in rather large cysts so the fat balls might require sufficient space for their formation. Whether globule formation occurs in both benign and malignant cysts is not known.
