AbstractBackground: Ovarian cysts are fairly common in neonates, resulting from exaggerated follicular development stimulated by the maternal hormones. The present study was conducted to assess ovarian cysts.
Materials & Methods: 64 cases of ovarian cysts were recorded. Clinical features such as type, marital status, location, side and clinical findings etc. were recorded.
Results: Age group 20-25 years had 30, 25-30 years had 20 and >30 years had 14 cases. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Common type was dermoid in 16, functional in 22, benign cyst adenoma in 5, endometriosis in 14, malignant in 4 and complicated in 3 cases. Patients were single in 24 and married in 40. Type was ovarian in 54, para ovarian in 6 and retroperitoneal in 4 cases, side was left in 30 and right in 34. Clinical features were abdominal painin 32, vaginal bleeding in 58, abdominal swelling in 64 and infertility in 5 cases. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
