Abstract

Abstract The article offers a description of a clinical course of treatment of a 76-year-old woman who had undergone a giant ovarian cyst removal. After the surgery, a chronic intraperitoneal exudation occurred in the quantity of over one liter per day for twenty two days after the intervention. The chronic exudation caused significant electrolyte disturbance and protein deficiency. It was confirmed that in the event of proper electrolytes and proteins supplementation, the phenomenon of the massive exudation does not present a direct threat to the patient, although the course of the treatment lengthens significantly.
