In short


  • The classic appearance of an endometrioma, often referred to as a “chocolate cyst” because of the presence of thick, dark, degenerated blood products, is a homogeneous, hypoechoic lesion within the ovary with low-level echoes and no internal blood flow
  • Rupture of an endometrioma is a rare condition, most commonly occurs during pregnancy because of rapid growth from hormonal stimulation of endometrial stromal elements
  • Small endometrioma (< 3 cm) is aspirated laparoscopically with cauterisation of the wall, larger than 4cm require laparoscopy for ovarian cystectomy and adhesiolysis.
  • When there is no improvement of infertility due to endometriosis with the usual treatment, couples should be counseled for ART.
