Morbid obesity affects 3% to 5% of the U.S. population and poses challenging problems to the anesthesiologist during the perioperative period. We present a unique case of the management of a morbidly obese woman complicated by a massive ovarian cyst. The major cardiopulmonary, metabolic, and technical features special to this patient population are discussed.
