Ovarian cysts are the most common abdominal tumor in female newborns. They could develop acute or long term complications. The most frequent complication is adnexal torsion, which presents with diagnostic difficulties in the neonatal period. Prenatal diagnosis is essential for the prompt management of patients. There are different treatment options where conservative and minimally invasive surgery plays an important role. We report a female newborn with prenatal diagnosis of macrosomia and uncomplicated ovarian cyst, which suffered adnexal torsion during the first days of life and was successfully resolved with a conservative surgical management by a multidisciplinary staff.
