Abstract

OBJECTIVE. Large nonresolving neonatal ovarian cysts may be a risk factor for complications such as torsion, mass effect, rupture, intracystic hemorrhage, and autoamputation. Torsed cysts and autoamputated cysts can cause a diagnostic dilemma. The objective of our study was to correlate the imaging findings of intrauterine ovarian torsion and autoamputated ovaries with their pathologic findings.
