The outcome of antenatally diagnosed ovarian cysts

Hashem E. Aqrabawi.

Abstract
Objective
To determine clinical outcome of ovarian cysts diagnosed antenatally.
Methods
The study was conducted over two year’s period from January 2008 to December 2009. Eight newborns were diagnosed to have ovarian cysts by antenatal ultrasound. All were followed regularly in the neonatal clinic. Postnatal ultrasound was done at one, three, six months and one year of age.
Results
All cysts disappeared by the age of one year. None of them had any symptom during the follow up period.
Conclusion
Conservative approach with serial ultrasound is recommended for follow up of infants with antenatally diagnosed asymptomatic ovarian cysts. Surgery should be reserved for symptomatic and large cysts not regressing by the age of one year. (Rawal Med J 2011;36:147-149).

Key words: Ovarian cysts, neonates.
