Seventy patients with palpable adnexal masses were subjected to ultrasonographic examination. Three patients with negative ultrasound and no disease were excluded from the final analysis. Correct diagnosis was obtained in 58.2% patients; contributory information in 16.4%. Ultrasonography is valuable in diagnosing functional and benign ovarian neoplasms. It is also useful in suspecting malignant ovarian neoplasms and confirming diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy, if correlated with the clinical findings.
