We are presenting a case of a 13-year-old female patient diagnosed and operated for maxillary odontogenic myxoma extending to the anterior cranial base. The postoperative complication occurred in the form of acute circulatory collapse. The patient was bailed out with cardiopulmonary resuscitation and return of spontaneous circulation occurred. Investigations into the cause of the event led to the finding of an uncommon syndrome. Meigs syndrome is a triad of ovarian tumor mass, pleural effusion and ascites. It has been the topic of interest for the gynecologic fraternity since 1934, when the first case was reported by J. V. Meigs. According to the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of an acute circulatory collapse due to Meigs syndrome in a maxillofacial patient.
