The purpose of this report is to describe a very rare case of bilateral tubo-ovarian filariasis with retroperitoneal extension in a 20-year-old female patient. The patient complained of low-grade fever with whitish cloudy urine. Computerized tomography imaging revealed hypodense cystic abdominopelvic masses with nonenhancing septations involving the retroperitoneum and ultrasound showing the characteristic “dancing larvae sign” suggesting filariasis.
