07/01/2008 - "Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome caused by uterine smooth muscle tumor of uncertain malignant potential with low vascular endothelial growth factor expression."
01/01/2013 - "This case indicates that Meigs syndrome may on occasion present with additional findings that can further mimic disseminated malignancy and may lead to diagnostic uncertainty."
01/01/2009 - "Nevertheless, benign ovarian masses can mimic this clinical picture when they are associated with Meigs' syndrome making the work-up and management of these patients challenging. "
06/01/2015 - "Benign leiomyoma accompanied by pseudo-Meigs' syndrome and elevated serum CA125 can mimic a pelvic malignancy."
01/01/2013 - "In Meigs syndrome the classical findings of ascites, pleural effusion in combination with an ovarian mass can mimic disseminated malignancy but resolve spontaneously after surgery. "
01/01/1998 - "Pseudo-Meigs' syndrome due to broad ligament leiomyoma: a mimic of metastatic ovarian carcinoma."
05/01/1989 - "The associations with Meig's syndrome, greatly elevated hormone levels and presence of omental and retroperitoneal nodules, raised a suspicion of malignancy."
06/01/1966 - "[Demons-Meigs syndrome caused by ovarian tumor secreting hydrating hormones]."
01/01/1992 - "We also believe our case to support the hypothesis of a hormone implication in Meigs' syndrome cause, as the symptoms correlated with menses, and especially as the morphopathological diagnosis was ovarian fibroma with myxoid areas, which could be incriminated for the patient's primary infertility, but it was not properly investigated."
06/01/1970 - "[Acute Meigs' syndrome caused by gonadotropins]."

05/01/1993 - "The features of this disease were described by Meigs and Cass in 1937; in the same year Roads named it Meigs syndrome. "
04/01/2003 - "The association of a benign ovarian tumor with ascites and hydrothorax that resolve after tumor resection is known as Meigs syndrome, and its importance was first emphasized by Meigs and Cass in 1937. "
11/01/2015 - "Our report highlights the importance of presurgical identification of Meigs syndrome in order to curtail salpingo-oophorectomy when feasible."

06/01/2012 - "The patient was a 58-year-old woman with thecoma of the right ovary accompanied by Meigs syndrome, who had undergone abdominal total hysterectomy and bilateral oophorectomy. "
01/01/2015 - "The definitive diagnosis of pseudo-Meigs' syndrome was made by confirming the fact that pleural effusion and ascites disappeared after bilateral oophorectomy. "

03/01/2006 - "The biologic explorations (the benign cytology in the pleural liquid and ascites, CA-125 with ten times the normal value) and the imagery completed the picture of a Meigs/ pseudo-Meigs syndrome that implied the laparotomy. "
09/01/1999 - "Finally, exploratory laparotomy was performed under the suspicion of Meigs' syndrome or TB peritonitis. "
08/01/2008 - "The chronic development of abdominal hypertension and onset of the abdominal compartment syndrome associated with Meigs' syndrome must be recognized in a timely manner and promptly treated by performing as complete a resection of the pelvic mass as possible; alternatively, in acute abdominal hypertension the monitoring of bladder pressure can evaluate the effectiveness of medical therapy and determine the optimal timing of decompressive laparotomy in case of the abdominal compartment syndrome."
|3.||Drug Therapy (Chemotherapy)
01/01/2009 - "Surgical removal and chemotherapy against the ovarian cancer resulted in disappearance of the ascites and pleural effusion, establishing a diagnosis of pseudo-Meigs'syndrome. "
12/01/2012 - "After failure to control the ascites with systemic and intra-abdominal chemotherapy, bilateral oophorectomy resulted in normalization of elevated serum tumor-marker levels and the disappearance of both the ascites and pleural effusions (i.e., pseudo-Meigs' syndrome). "
