Abstract

With the advent of antenatal ultrasonography (USG), detection of neonatal intra-abdominal cystic lesions is on the rise. We present a neonate who was detected antenatally to have a cystic lesion per abdomen and presented with features of intestinal obstruction on first postnatal day. Emergency exploratory laparotomy revealed a left torsed ovarian cyst compressing the ileoceacal junction. Left oophorectomy was done and ovarian torsion was confirmed by histopathology examination. The USG abdomen at six months follow up showed a well visualised right ovary.
