|Abstract: ||The first prenatal detection of an ovarian cyst was by Valenti in 1975.
Since then antenatal and neonatal ovarian cysts are encountered more
frequently due to the improvement of imaging techniques as well as
routine antenatal ultrasound scanning. We discuss here the laparoscopic
management of three cases of neonatal ovarian cysts. This approach is
well tolerated by neonates, and it may overcome the controversy between
the ′wait and see′ policy and early surgical intervention,
as laparoscopy has both diagnostic and therapeutic value with minimal
morbidity, and ovarian salvage whenever possible.|
