Ovarian dermoid cysts, also known as mature teratomas, are one of the ovarian numbers that can develop into malignancy and are mostly found in women aged 20–40 years. Most cases of teratoma mature cystic were discovered accidentally through the imaging examination. We reported a 31-year-old woman with complaints of bleeding from the birth canal for 16 days and accompanied by sharp pain during menstruation. The general condition is good and other vital signs examined were within normal limits. Abdominal ultrasound examination showed a mass in the right adnexa with a size of 12 × 10 × 8 cm and there were longitudinal thin white lines. Laparoscopic right ovarian oophorectomy was performed. After removing the mass was opened and there was a lot of hair in it. There are no complications during surgery and after surgery. The results of the histopathological examination were by the dermoid cyst.
