One paraovarian cyst was found on the left, and one small cyst in the left fallopian tube.
That having been noted, however, some low-grade cellular neoplasms primary in the ovary, should they extend into the paraovarian soft tissue such as the AGCT, can have a somewhat nodular almost tonguelike growth.
Paratubal, or paraovarian, cysts typically are round or oval avascular hypoechoic cysts separate from the adjacent ovary.
On pathological analysis of laparoscopic paraovarian and paratubal cyst biopsy material, tissues differentiated as both Mullerian and Wolffian ducts were observed.
Pelvic ultrasound and MRI showed a left paraovarian mass with a suspicion of torsion.
When the adjacent organ is an ovary, the cyst is also called a paraovarian cyst.
The adnexa of the uterus include the ovaries fallopian tube and the paraovarian tissue.

Cysts related to the Mullerian system usually occur in paraovarian (1) or paratubal regions (2).
This is true of most dermoid cysts, endometriomas, corpus luteum cysts, hydrosalpinges and peritoneal pseudocysts, and of many paraovarian cysts and benign solid ovarian tumours, for example, fibromas, fibrothecomas, thecofibromas, and thecomas.
