Three years' experience with large ovarian cysts diagnosed in utero.
Results show that large abdominal cystic masses in full-term infant girls with normal gonadotrophin levels and normal serum estradiol-17 beta and progesterone levels are very likely to require surgery; this is in contrast to preterm neonates with elevated gonadOTrophins who can be treated with medroxyprogesterone acetate in the absence of clinical signs necessitating surgery.
Ultrasound diagnosis and evaluation of fetal tumors.
It remains unclear whether in utero puncture of the cyst and evacuation of its content should be justified in cases of particularly large ovarian cyst, but in the authors' opinion intrauterine procedure can be attempted in the presence of large cyst fulfilling the fetal abdomen.
Congenital Ovarian Cyst: Diagnosis and Perinatal Management
Prenatal and postnatal outcomes of ultrasonographically diagnosed fetal ovarian cysts (FOC) are described and an obstetric management algorithm is proposed to propose to improve the protection of the ovarian parenchyma.
Prenatal Diagnosis of a Fetal Ovarian Cyst Complicated with Postnatal Ovarian Torsion: Case Report
The follow up and postnatal treatment of a case of fetal ovarian cyst that was diagnosed in the prenatal period is presented and the infant was operated for ovarian torsion in the postnatal 14th day.
Surgical indications in antenatally diagnosed ovarian cysts.
Serial ultrasonography allows accurate diagnosis and long-term assessment of ovarian cysts in the neonate and may prevent unnecessary oophorectomy.
The comparative study of Yaz and Ovocept-ld on patients with simple ovarian cysts referring to Iran-Isfahan Shariati Hospital
Given the faster and better recovery effect, and the lesser side effects of Yaz as compared to Ovocept-LD, it is recommended to use Yaz for the simple ovarian cysts.
Clinical experience of five fetal ovarian cysts: diagnosis and follow-up
An ovarian cyst is not a life-threatening condition, so they should be just closely monitored pre- and postnatally until spontaneous resolution, but when torsion of the cysts is suspected, surgical intervention is necessary.
Clinical Experiences of Fetal Ovarian Cyst: Diagnosis and Consequence
Postnatal symptomatic cysts or cysts with a diameter greater than 5 cm that do not regress or enlarge should be treated, but uncomplicated asymptomatic Cysts less than 5cm in diameter should only be observed and reassessed by serial ultrasonography.
Case 6-1995
A one-month-old girl was admitted to the hospital because of an intraabdominal mass, and after a 42-week gestation, the infant had been delivered by cesarean section because of cephalopelvic disproportion.

Ovarian Lutein Cysts in Pregnancy
When theca lutein cyst is diagnosed during pregnancy or labor, conservative treatment, including minimal intervention with the cystic ovaries, is advocated.
Delayed regression of huge theca lutein cysts monitored by serial sonograms and beta-HCG levels.
A patient is reported in whom there was delayed regression of huge theca lutein cysts compared to the regression of the serum beta-HCG levels after evacuation of a benign non-recurring hydatidiform mole.
Ovarian cysts in the newborn.
Nine newborns with ovarian cysts of various histologic type are reported, and 28 similar cases from the literature are reviewed, and the key diagnostic procedure is intravenous urography.
Screening criteria for high-risk gestational diabetic patients.
Clinical history, including previous abnormal pregnancy history, birth of a large baby, maternal obesity, and family history of diabetes, is demonstrated to be an insensitive screening factor in the
An evaluation of two equations for predicting fetal weight by ultrasound.
An earlier unpublished table of estimated fetal weights from ultrasound measurements of abdominal circumference and biparietal diameter was reconsidered and it was found that E2 provides a better balance between the distribution of overestimations and underestimations.
Prenatal fetal abdominal ultrasonography and diagnosis.
Ultrasound fetal abdominal anatomy is described and prenatal diagnosis based on anatomical landmarks is illustrated using gray scale recording for antenatal fetal ultrasound diagnosis.
