Incidentally found hyperreactio luteinalis in pregnancy.

Radiol Case Rep 2018 Dec 20;13(6):1220-1223. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1E2, Canada.

Hyperreactio luteinalis (HL) is a rare pregnancy-related condition in which the ovaries become massively enlarged bilaterally, occupied by multiple benign theca lutein cysts, secondary to increased ovarian stimulation by beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (B-hCG). HL should resolve spontaneously postpartum, however, their occurrence has led some physicians unfamiliar with the natural history of the condition to perform unnecessary ovarian cystectomies or oophorectomies. A healthy 32-year-old woman was incidentally found to have new onset multicystic ovaries on ultrasound at 31 + 3 weeks gestational age, which continued to enlarge, with a maximum volume of ∼448.
