Ovarian tumor necrosis in monochorionic twin pregnancy. A case report


Author(s): Marta Osmólska (ABDEF), Barbara Kicel-Wesołowska (ABDEF)

Ovarian tumors are a rare complication of pregnancy. Their diagnosis in the first trimester of gestation is not usually problematic. They can be diagnosed incidentally in the third trimester of pregnancy during cesarean section or when symptoms appear. This article highlights the need to observe all recommended diagnostic tests in pregnant women and presents the preferred obstetric management to detect pregnancy complications and promptly implement adequate treatment. Key words: twin pregnancy; cesarean section; ovarian torsion
