Cysts in pregnancy discovered by sonography.


The incidence of cysts in pregnancy was established with ultrasound. In 3,330 pregnant patients who underwent sonography, 38 adnexal cystic lesions (1.14%) were found. All but two cysts were discovered before 16 weeks. Follow-up showed that the majority of the cystic lesions resolved spontaneously; these were presumed to represent corpus luteum cysts. Five patients underwent surgery because of persistent cystic lesions; a mucinous cystadenoma, a benign cystic teratoma, a paraovarian cyst, an inclusion cyst, and a tuboovarian abscess were found. Septations and echogenic material were seen within the cystic teratoma and the tuboovarian abscess but the sonographic features of the other operated lesions were identical to those seen in the corpus luteum cysts.
