Tuberculosis (TB) is the second leading cause of death from infectious diseases worldwide. In non immuno compromised women, extra pulmonary TB accounts for 20% of new cases identified .Isolated ovarian TB is an uncommon disease given that genitourinary TB usually presents with endometrial and fallopian tube involvement. We report a case of cystic ovarian mass, with ascites, pleural effusion; tuberculosis of ovary and omentum; third degree utero vaginal prolapse in a post menopausal woman. Ascites and pleural effusion resolved spontaneously in a week of surgery. Patient received ATT and recovered well. Diagnostic difficulties in this case are discussed.
