In the differential diagnosis of cases with acute abdomen symptoms in adolescents, the underlying causes such as acute appendicitis, ruptured corpus luteum cyst
, torsion of an ovarian cyst, and ectopic pregnancy are to be considered by surgeons.
Ectopic pregnancy versus corpus luteum cyst
revisited: best Doppler predictors.
The uterus was dilated with a larger left uterine horn and prominent congested blood vessels; a corpus luteum cyst
was present in the left ovary.
that the wall of the corpus luteum is typically less echogenic than the endometrium and that an anechoic cystic structure with a thin wall is significantly more likely to be the corpus luteum cyst
rather than an ectopic pregnancy.
The pathologist measured the tumor at 16 x 12 x 4 cm and determined that it was a corpus luteum cyst
A reddish-yellow corpus luteum cyst
can occur when the egg leaves the ovary, as well as when a large amount of estrogen produces over-stimulation.
No adnexal pathology other than a small right ovarian corpus luteum cyst
was noted at the time of operation.
2) Corpus luteum cyst
and benign cystic teratoma contribute to two-thirds of the cases.
The differential diagnosis of pseudocyesis includes pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, corpus luteum cyst
, pituitary tumor, and pelvic tumor.
Do not mistake the simple corpus luteum cyst
of the ovary for an ectopic pregnancy.
13-15] In our study 2 patients did not have any associated adnexal conditions, whereas 4 had a benign hemorrhagic cyst, 2 PCOS and two had ruptured corpus luteum cyst
Reliability of adnexal mass mobility in distinguishing possible ectopic pregnancy from corpus luteum cysts
