    Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


    The specific preoperative diagnosis of a pelvic mass can be challenging despite the excellent anatomic detail provided by sonographic imaging of the female pelvis. There is a wide spectrum of possible differential diagnoses of a complex pelvic mass, including benign ovarian cysts, ovarian carcinoma, hydrosalpinx, tubo-ovarian abscess, gastrointestinal conditions (e.g., inflammatory bowel disease, mucocele, and abscess), peritoneal causes (e.g., pseudocyst, malignancy, and tuberculous peritonitis), lymphoma, and mesothelioma. This report describes a case of tuberculous peritonitis in a young woman with a large pelvic mass and sonographic features mimicking those of an ovarian cystadenoma.
