Abstract

Widespread use of ultrasound examination during pregnancy caused an increase in the detection of adnexal masses during pregnancy. These masses, while being mostly functional ovarian cysts and resolve spontaneously, may represent a wide range of different pathologies including malignancy. Although most masses may be managed conservatively during pregnancy, some may necessitate surgical interventions due to complications or findings suggesting malignancy. In this article, the diagnosis and management of adnexal masses detected during pregnancy are discussed based on three cases and a short review of the literature.
