An interesting case of intrauterine torsion of ovarian cyst in a female fetus

Abstract


Fetal ovarian cysts are usually benign and managed conservatively. We report an interesting case of fetal ovarian cyst diagnosed in the antenatal period. Post-delivery, neonate was operated for torsion of the ovarian cyst. The baby recovered well.
