The cyst wall in this mature cystic teratoma is studded with yellow-white nodules of sebaceous material. Sudden rupture may sometimes occur spilling this material into the peritoneal cavity causing acute abdomen. Slow leak may cause granulomatous peritonitis which may mimic tuberculous peritonitis.
