The Demons-Meigs syndrome should usually be evoked in case of presence of a typical triad: abdominopelvic mass, ascites and hydrothorax.
Nevertheless, a Demons-Meigs syndrome or a Demons' pseudosyndrome should be suspected when faced with a negative cytologic analysis of the ascitic and pleural effusion and no peritoneal implant on CT-scan.
