Ovarian cysts are a common finding detected by ultrasound in neonates, infants, children and adolescents.

Modern management schemes proposed a conservative approach, close observation and follow up by ultrasound. Surgical intervention is reserved for symptomatic patients, ovarian torsion or signs of malignancy
