Abstract

Clinical pictures and histopathological findings in 15 patients of tubal cyst following tubal sterilization were analyzed. The interval between tubal sterilization and occurrence of tubal cyst was 10 years (ranged from 4 to 21 years). Clinically 8 cases (53%) suffered from lower abdominal pain, 5 cases (33%) from hypermenorrhea coexistent with uterine myoma and 2 cases (13%) from irregular menstruation. Five out of 9 patients with ultrasound examination were suspected to have tubal cyst before operation. The size of tubal cyst ranged from 1.5 to 9.0 cm in diameter with mean 3.4 cm. Eleven were unilateral and 4 were bilateral. Histologically they showed flattened mucosal epithelial cells with absence of epithelial plica, compression atrophy of muscular layer, suture stitch or granuloma and intact fimbria with clear serous fluid. Thus, the differential diagnosis of adnexal cyst in patients with a past history of tubal sterilization should include tubal cyst.
