Abstract

It is well known that the hydatidiform mole, chorioadenoma destruens and choriocarcinoma are often associated with the cystic anlargement of the ovaries. The frequency of this association cannot be stated exactly, some authors report 3.7 per cent others 50 per cent. These cysts are called theca-lutein cysts because they originate in the follicles where there is no preceeding ovulation and the luteinized cells have been thought to be thecal in origin. The theca-lutein cysts usually undergo spontaneous regression and need no treatment. Sometimes however they can cause serious clinical symptoms an even lead to life-threatening conditions. In the following the authors present a case of enormously enlarged ovaries due to multiple theca-lutein cysts associated with chorioadenoma destruens. The case is worth publishing not only because of the unusual size of the ovaries but because of difficulties in differential diagnosis and because of the opportunity to study the fine structure of the lutein cells in the wall of the cysts.
