Uteroovarian ligament torsion of the due to a paratubal cyst

J Pediatr Adolesc Gynecol. 2005 Apr;18(2):125-7. doi: 10.1016/j.jpag.2005.01.009.


Paratubal cysts rarely undergo torsion. When they do, typically they involve the infundibulopelvic ligament and affect the ovary and fallopian tube. We present a case and discussion of torsion of the uteroovarian ligament secondary to a large paratubal cyst with preservation of the ovary and fallopian tube.
