female, 27 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Intrauterine mole (US)

    Transvesical ultrasonography (sagittal view) shows an hyperechogeneous intrauterine mass (11 x 9.5 x 6.5cm) containing multiple anechogeneous liquid spaces. The uterine wall is thin and well-delimitated without...

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Intrauterine mole (US);
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Lutein cysts of the right ovary (US)

    Endovaginal ultrasonography displays multiple thin walled lutein cysts within the right ovary (5.4 x 4.5 cm).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Lutein cysts of the right ovary (US);
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Intrauterine mole and lutein cysts (CT)
     

    Contrast enhanced pelvic-CT (5mm slice) demonstrates a large uterus (20 cm x16 cm) containing a low-density mass with heterogeneous borders.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Intrauterine mole and lutein cysts (CT);

    Both ovaries are enlarged (maximal diameter: 9 cm) with a multicystic aspect and an homogenous content typical of lutein cysts.
