Abstract

A pregnant woman with a history of endometriosis and persistent bilateral adnexal masses underwent laparoscopic ovarian cystectomies at 16 weeks of gestation. There were no adverse sequelae, and the patient had an otherwise uneventful pregnancy and delivery. Operative laparoscopy should be considered to replace laparotomy in appropriate cases during pregnancy.
