A Case Report of Pre Menarcheal Ovarian Cyst - A Rarity

Dr. Chandni, Dr. R. Nithya

Abstract: Age-related changes in ovarian morphology and size have been studied in the past. Various studies show that ovarian volume is relatively stable up to 5-6 years of age, followed by an increase in cystic functional changes in the ovary, when the regular age-related growth started. USG studies now have established that ovary has a heterogenous echotexture with cysts being a common finding. We consider case of a 12yr old prepubertal girl who came with complaint of lower abdominal pain, who was diagnosed and treated for ovarian torsion with a para-ovarian cyst after two prior clinic visits.
