Twenty patients, showing retention cysts in vaginosonographic examination, were included in our study. We differentiated between superficial and deep located Nabothian cysts. Fourteen cases showed primarily visible superficial cysts, the other six could only be detected vaginosonographically. The Nabothian cysts varied in size from 4 to 26 mm, the average diameter was 13 mm. Only four cases showed solitary Nabothian cysts, the other sixteen cases were multiple. The clinical significance of Nabothian cysts in the field of sterility diagnostics, especially the deep located retention cysts, cannot be assessed at present.

    ABSTRACT: Gutartige Tumoren des Uterus gehören zu den häufigsten Neoplasien des weiblichen inneren Genitales. Neben zystischen Veränderungen werden auch zahlreiche solide Veränderungen beschrieben, die von allen histologischen Strukturen des Uterus ausgehen können. Nicht alle diagnostizierten Befunde stellen eine Behandlungsindikation dar. In der Entscheidung über operative Interventionen oder exspektativ klinisches Verhalten sollte der behandelnde Arzt mit der Diagnostik, dem klinischen Bild und der Differenzialdiagnostik vertraut sein.

    ABSTRACT: Gartner duct cysts, the most common benign cystic lesion of the vagina, represent embryologic remnants of the caudal end of the mesonephric (wolffian) duct. These cysts are usually small and asymptomatic and have been reported to occur in as many as 1 % of all women. Because the ureteral bud also develops from the wolffian duct, it is not surprising that Gartner duct cysts have been associated with ureteral and renal abnormalities, including congenital ipsilateral renal dysgenesis or agenesis, crossed fused renal ectopia, and ectopic ureters. In addition, associated anomalies of the female genital tract, including structural uterine anomalies (ipsilateral müllerian duct obstruction, bicornuate uteri, and uterus didelphys) and diverticulosis of the fallopian tubes, have been described. Transabdominal and transrectal ultrasonographic depiction of Gartner duct cysts have been reported previously. Here we report the transvaginal ultrasonographic findings of this condition.
