Torsion of paraovarian CYST resulting in secondary torsion of ovary


Roshan Valentine, Partha Sarathi Sarkar, Pavan KV

Paraovarian cysts account for 10 to 20 % of all adnexal masses. Small POC (Paraovarian Cyst) are common but large POC are rare and very rarely they undergo torsion. Fallopian tube and ovary being in close proximity to POC also undergo torsion along with it. (5). It is usually found in child bearing age. High index of suspicion & prompt treatment is required to salvage the fallopian tube and ovary in such cases. We report a rare case of twisted paraovarian cyst with secondary torsion of ovary around infundibulopelvic ligament.
