Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To present the spectrum of sonographic findings associated with hemorrhagic ovarian cysts.

METHODS:

Experience with making specific and correct diagnosis of hemorrhagic cysts with the use of sonography was reviewed, and the spectrum of sonographic findings was identified.

RESULTS:

Endovaginal sonography facilitated excellent visualization of internal architectural details of an adnexal mass, which enabled specific diagnosis of hemorrhagic cysts instead of other adnexal masses.

CONCLUSIONS:

A hemorrhagic cyst is a common and important entity to recognize and diagnose correctly, and because it can be confused with more ominous conditions, it is important to recognize its specific diagnostic patterns.
