A 6-yr-old female central bearded dragon (Pogona vitticeps) was examined for a 6 month history of increasing coelomic distention, dyspnea, dysorexia, and tenesmus. Complementary examinations revealed hyperuricemia, hyperphosphatemia, increased creatine kinase, and a heterogeneous polycystic mass with peripheral coelomic effusion. An exploratory coeliotomy revealed a mass at the anatomical location of the right ovary and follicular stasis of the left ovary; bilateral ovariectomy was performed. After anatomopathological and bacterial examination, the dragon was diagnosed with benign ovarian teratoma and secondary bacterial infection. The presence of yolk and remnants of the ovary with several cell types originating from different origins, which was confirmed by immunohistological examination, is consistent with ovarian teratoma lesions generally observed in other species.
