Cystic ovaries in cystic fibrosis: an ultrasound and autopsy study.


Ultrasound examination of 13 patients with cystic fibrosis revealed ovarian cysts more than 3 cm in size in 46 per cent. All cysts were unilateral, unilocular, and transitory. An autopsy study of 23 patients with cystic fibrosis showed that the measured diameter of the largest ovarian follicle was greater in these patients than in a similar group of age-matched controls (P less than 0.05). The relationship of these ovarian changes to cystic fibrosis is discussed.
