Abstract
We report a case of hyperreactio luteinalis in a patient with normal singleton pregna-ncy. In the 10th week of gestation, the patient developed lower abdominal pain accompanied by abdominal distension. Ultrasonography revealed bilateral ovarian cysts. Right salpingo-oophorectomy was performed due to torsion of right ovarian cyst. The pathologic diagnosis was corpus luteal cyst. Any signs of maternal virilization were not seen. The patient deliv-ered a normal male infant at 39th week of gestation. As hyperreactio luteinalis is a benign condition in itself with normal spontaneous remission after delivery, the conservative man-agement may be appropriate.
Key Words: Hyperreactio luteinalis, Pregnancy, Ovarian cyst, Virilization
