Differential serodiagnosis for cystic and alveolar echinococcosis using fractions of Echinococcus granulosus cyst fluid (antigen B) and E. multilocularis protoscolex (EM18). (1/75)

Echinococcus granulosus cyst fluid and E. multilocularis protoscolex extract were fractionated by a single step of preparative isoelectric focusing, resulting in an antigen B-rich fraction (8-kD) and an Em18-rich fraction, respectively. The usefulness of both fractions for differential serodiagnosis of cystic (CE) and alveolar (AE) echinococcosis was evaluated by a large-scale immunoblot analysis on a battery of 354 serum samples. These included 66 from AE patients originating from four different endemic areas, 173 from CE patients originating from seven different endemic areas, 71 from patients with other parasitic diseases, 15 from patients with hepatomas, and 29 from healthy individuals. In an immunoblot with the antigen B-rich fraction, 92% (158 of 173) of the CE sera as well as 79% (52 of 66) of the AE sera reacted with the 8-kD subunit. No cross-reactivity occurred with any sera from patients with cysticercosis, other parasitic diseases, or with hepatomas, or from healthy controls. In an immunoblot with the Em18-rich fraction, all but two sera from AE patients (64 of 66, 97%) recognized Em18, and only nine of 34 CE sera from China reacted with it. All other (139) CE sera from six other countries were negative as were all (115) other non-echinococcosis sera. These findings indicate that antigen B (8-kD) is not species-specific for E. granulosus but is genus-specific for Echinococcus, and that the Em18 antigen is a reliable serologic marker for species-specific differentiation of AE from CE.  (+info)

New insights into the molecular pathophysiology of polycystic kidney disease. (2/75)

Polycystic kidney diseases are characterized by the progressive expansion of multiple cystic lesions, which compromise the function of normal parenchyma. Throughout the course of these diseases, renal tubular function and structure are altered, changing the tubular microenvironment and ultimately causing the formation and progressive expansion of cystic lesions. Renal tubules are predisposed to cystogenesis when a germ line mutation is inherited in either the human PKD1 or PKD2 genes in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) or when a homozygous mutation in Tg737 is inherited in the orpk mouse model of autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD). Recent information strongly suggests that the protein products of these disease genes may form a macromolecular signaling structure, the polycystin complex, which regulates fundamental aspects of renal epithelial development and cell biology. Here, we re-examine the cellular pathophysiology of renal cyst formation and enlargement in the context of our current understanding of the molecular genetics of ADPKD and ARPKD.  (+info)

Vascular endothelial growth factor levels in ovarian cyst fluid correlate with malignancy. (3/75)

Ovarian cancer is a richly vascularized neoplasm with solid and cystic components. The purpose of this study was to determine whether cyst fluid could be used to quantitatively evaluate production of angiogenic factors in ovarian lesions. ELISA was used to measure vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in the cyst fluid of patients with ovarian cancer (n = 13), benign cysts and cystadenomas (n = 23), borderline tumors (n = 5), and functional cysts (n = 8). VEGF levels were markedly elevated in the fluid of malignant cysts (38.5+/-8.2 ng/ml) as compared with benign (1.6+/-0.4 ng/ml; P < 0.001), borderline (5.7+/-1.5 ng/ml; P < 0.001), or functional cysts (3.8+/-2.0 ng/ml; P < 0.001). The presence of VEGF in cancer cells was confirmed by immunohistochemistry. Follow-up of patients with malignant and borderline lesions demonstrated a correlation between VEGF levels in cyst fluid and tumor recurrence (P = 0.03). bFGF in malignant cysts was either undetectable or very low (0.3+/-0.2 ng/ml), and no significant differences were found in bFGF levels among malignant, benign, borderline, and functional cysts. This study demonstrates that ovarian malignancy is associated with dramatic elevation of VEGF levels in ovarian cyst fluid. Conversely, there is no correlation between cyst fluid bFGF levels and malignant transformation. The high levels of VEGF in malignant cysts are consistent with the hypothesis that this growth factor plays an important role in ovarian cancer related-angiogenesis and tumor progression and represents a potentially important target of antiangiogenic therapy.  (+info)

Factors that increase the risk of leakage during surgical removal of benign cystic teratomas. (4/75)

The contents of mature cystic teratomas can be a potent irritant resulting in chemical peritonitis. Using a retrospective cohort, we examined the various risk factors for leakage of benign cystic teratomas during laparoscopy and laparotomy. Cyst leakage of the benign cystic teratoma contents was the primary endpoint. In all, 158 women underwent surgery for a total of 178 ovarian benign cystic teratomas. Statistical analysis was performed using chi(2), Mann-Whitney U and multivariate logistic regression analysis. A total of 115 benign cystic teratomas was successfully removed without intra-operative leakage and 63 underwent intra-operative leakage either at laparoscopy or laparotomy. The likelihood of success of removing the benign cystic teratoma intact was unrelated to age, pre-operative size or surgical technique. There was no difference among cystectomies performed by laparotomy in surgeon experience or the presence of adhesions. However, surgeons with more laparoscopic experience (>35 laparoscopies/year) were less likely to have intra-operative leakage (relative risk: 0.5, 95% confidence interval: 0.2, 1.2) compared to surgeons with less experience (<20/year) at cystectomy (26.1 versus 51.2% respectively). Oophorectomy significantly reduced the frequency of intra-operative leakage at both laparoscopy and laparotomy (14.7%). These findings suggest that laparoscopic experience can reduce the risk of leakage at cystectomy. At laparotomy, lack of surgeon postgraduate years of experience was not a risk factor for leakage.  (+info)

Modulation of oestrone sulphate formation and hydrolysis in breast cancer cells by breast cyst fluid from British and Hungarian women. (5/75)

Women with gross cystic breast disease may have an increased risk of breast cancer. In this study the ability of breast cyst fluid (BCF), obtained from British or Hungarian women, to modulate oestrone sulphate (E1S) formation or hydrolysis, has been examined. For this, oestrogen receptor-positive (ER+) MCF-7 or MDA-MB-231 (ER-) breast cancer cells were employed. The formation and hydrolysis of E1S was measured using radiometric techniques. BCF from British and Hungarian women mainly inhibited E1S hydrolysis in MCF-7 cells while stimulating hydrolysis in MDA-MB-231 cells. The extent of inhibition or stimulation of E1S hydrolysis in these cells was related to the Na+/K+ ratio of the BCF. There was a significant inverse relationship between the extent to which BCF samples inhibited hydrolysis in MCF-7 cells and stimulated it in MDA-MB-231 cells. BCF stimulated E1S formation in MCF-7 cells while inhibiting formation in MDA-MB-231 cells. No difference in the ability of BCF from British or Hungarian women to inhibit or stimulate E1S hydrolysis was detected in ER+ or ER- breast cancer cells. In contrast, BCF from British women stimulated E1S formation in ER+ cells (median 82%) to a significantly greater extent (P < 0.01) than BCF from Hungarian women (median 33%). The role that E1S has in breast cancer development remains unclear. The greater stimulation of E1S formation by BCF from British women, who have a higher risk of breast cancer than Hungarian women, suggests that it may act as a storage form of oestrogen within cells that can be activated by oestrone sulphatase.  (+info)

MUC-6 mucin is a major component of "blood group substance" from human ovarian cyst fluid. (6/75)

Ovarian cyst fluid has been a valuable source of the mucins (traditionally termed "blood group substances") that were used for the elucidation of the structures of the ABO Lewis blood group determinants, but the identity of the mucin peptide core(s) carrying these carbohydrate specificities is not known. An ovarian cyst fluid mucin was purified, deglycosylated with HF and digested with trypsin or chymotrypsin to yield a number of peptides. Amino acid sequencing of these peptides yielded five different sequences which showed complete or partial homology to the MUC-6 apomucin deduced from DNA sequencing. As no other sequences were identified, it is concluded that MUC-6 is the major mucin core structure of ovarian cyst fluid mucin.  (+info)

Characterization and optimization of bovine Echinococcus granulosus cyst fluid to be used in immunodiagnosis of hydatid disease by ELISA. (7/75)

The aim of this work was to assess the influence in the diagnostic value for human hydatid disease of the composition of bovine hydatid cyst fluid (BHCF) obtained from fertile (FC) and non-fertile cysts (NFC). Eight batches from FC and 5 from NFC were prepared and analysed with respect to chemical composition: total protein, host-derived protein, carbohydrate and lipid contents. No differences were observed in the first two parameters but carbohydrate and lipid contents were shown to be higher in batches from FC than in those from NFC. Bands of 38 and 116 kD in SDS-PAGE profiles were observed to be present in BHCF from FC only. Two pools were prepared from BHCF batches obtained from FC (PFC) and NFC (PNFC), respectively. Antigen recognition patterns were analysed by immunoblot. Physicochemical conditions for adsorption of antigens to the polystyrene surface (ELISA plates) were optimized. The diagnostic value of both types of BHCF as well as the diagnostic relevance of oxidation of their carbohydrate moieties with periodate were assessed by ELISA using 42 serum samples from hydatid patients, 41 from patients with other disorders, and 15 from healthy donors. Reactivity of all sera against native antigen were tested with and without free phosphorylcholine. The best diagnostic efficiency was observed using BHCF from periodate-treated PFC using glycine buffer with strong ionic strength to coat ELISA plates.  (+info)

Fetal ovarian cysts: prenatal diagnosis, management and postnatal outcome. (8/75)

OBJECTIVE: In female fetuses ovarian cysts represent the most important differential diagnosis for intra-abdominal masses. Analyzing our own patient population we investigated whether there was a connection between sonographic parameters and postnatal course, especially with regard to the need for surgical intervention. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective analysis of cases from the years 1986-1999. The pre- and postnatal data of 64 fetuses who were suspected prenatally to have an ovarian cyst were analyzed. The postnatal outcome was known for all the children. RESULTS: The diagnosis was made in all cases in the third trimester (median, 35; range, 26-40 weeks' gestation). In 34 of the 64 (53%) cases, resolution of the cyst occurred either prenatally (n = 18, 53%) or postnatally (n = 16, 47%). The cystic structure in the cases with resolution was isolated, smooth-walled (n = 29) or heterogeneous (n = 5). Postnatal surgery was performed in 30 of the 64 (47%) children. In 18 of the 30 children a fenestration of the ovary was performed (60%). In this group there were 13 children with an isolated, smooth-walled ovarian cyst and five children with a heterogeneous cyst. Twelve of the 30 (40%) children underwent an ovariectomy. Among these 12 children there were eight cases with a heterogeneous cystic structure and four cases with an isolated, smooth-walled cystic structure. Of the 30 cases that underwent surgery, 29 had a follicular cyst and one had an ovarian teratoma (with a heterogeneous internal structure). In three fetuses aspiration of cyst fluid was undertaken and subsequent resolution occurred in one case. The other two cases had to undergo postnatal fenestration. CONCLUSIONS: When an ovarian cyst is suspected prenatally, serial ultrasound monitoring should follow and delivery should take place in a perinatal center. The prenatal findings should also be checked postnatally by ultrasound. Prenatal aspiration of the cyst seems to be of no advantage and should be carried out only in special individual cases.  (+info)

Results During this period 267 procedures were performed on 235 individuals, of whom 71 had a definitive diagnosis (60 resection histology, 5 histology, 6 malignant cytology), cystic degeneration of pancreatic adenocarcinoma (3) being excluded. 68 patients (51 females), (78 procedures) formed the study group. There were 25 mucinous cyst adenomas (11 MCA, 14 MCAC). There were 22 IPMN (2 malignant) and 21 non-mucinous cysts.. For MCA/MCAC using a cut-off of 192 ng/ml the sensitivity, specificity, accuracy and NPV of detecting a mucinous lesion were 62.5%, 94.4%, 79.4%, 73.9%. Combining EUS morphology, cytology and visual assessment of aspirate (mucoid/non-mucoid) gave figures of 100%, 70.8%, 86%, 100%. The combination was significantly more sensitive p=0.007, but no significant difference in specificity. ROC area under the curve was numerically greater 0.861 versus 0.785 (not significant).. For the IPMN patients the cut-off 192 ng/ml showed a sensitivity of 20% in the diagnosis of IPMN. EUS ...

A report in The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics, describes a new simple molecular test to detect chromosomal abnormalities - biomarkers known as telomere fusions-in pancreatic tumor specimens and pancreatic cyst fluids. This assay may help predict the presence of high-grade or invasive pancreatic cancers requiring surgical intervention.. More sophisticated imaging of the pancreas has led to increased detection of presymptomatic lesions. The detection of telomere fusions has the potential to help physicians determine whether these lesions have a high likelihood of developing into pancreatic cancer requiring surgical resection or are more likely to be benign and can be followed by watchful waiting.. Clinicians rely on international consensus guidelines to help manage patients with pancreatic cancer precursor lesions such as intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs). These guidelines are useful but pancreatic imaging does not provide sufficient information about the neoplastic nature of ...

2020 American College of Radiology Incidental pancreatic cysts are increasingly detected on imaging studies performed for unrelated indications and may be incompletely characterized on these studies. Adequate morphological characterization is critical due to the small risk of malignant degeneration associated with neoplastic pancreatic cysts, as well as the risk of associated pancreatic adenocarcinoma. For all pancreatic cysts, both size and morphology determine management. Specifically, imaging detection of features, such as pancreatic ductal communication and presence or absence of worrisome features or high-risk stigmata, have important management implications. The recommendations in this publication determine the appropriate initial imaging study to further evaluate a pancreatic cyst that was incidentally detected on a nondedicated imaging study. The recommendations are designed to maximize the yield of diagnostic information in order to better risk-stratify pancreatic cysts and assist in ...

A pancreatic cyst is a fluid filled sac within the pancreas. Causes range from benign to malignant. Pancreatic pseudocysts can occur in the setting of pancreatitis, though they are only reliably diagnosed 6 weeks after the episode of acute pancreatitis. Benign tumors such as serous cystadenomas can occur. Main branch intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms (IPMNs) are associated with dilatation of the main pancreatic duct, while side branch IPMNs are typically benign, and not associated with dilatation. MRCP can help distinguish the position of the cysts relative to the pancreatic duct, and direct appropriate treatment and follow-up. The most common malignancy that can present as a pancreatic cyst is a mucinous cystic neoplasm. Cysts from 1-5 mm on CT or ultrasound are typically too small to characterize and considered benign. No further imaging follow-up is recommended for these lesions. Cysts from 6-9 mm require a single follow-up in 2-3 years, preferably with MRCP to better evaluate the ...
Purpose: Pancreatic cysts are common and pose diagnostic and management challenges. Pancreatic cyst fluid markers have the potential to aid in the management of cysts with concerning imaging findings. Our aim was to evaluate cyst fluid methylated DNA markers for their accuracy for predicting the histologic grade of neoplastic pancreatic cysts. Experimental Design: Pancreatic cyst fluid samples from 183 patients (29 discovery, 154 validation) aspirated after surgical resection were analyzed for methylated DNA at selected genes (SOX17, BNIP3, FOXE1, PTCHD2, SLIT2, EYA4 and SFRP1) using methylation-specific droplet-digital PCR (dd-QMSP). Methylated DNA levels were evaluated for their accuracy at predicting the grade of dysplasia of the pancreatic cyst. Results: All six markers evaluated in the validation set could accurately distinguish high-risk cystic neoplasms (with high-grade dysplasia and/or associated invasive cancer) from low-risk cysts (lower grades of dysplasia) with accuracies from 79.8 ...
CEAPC : When used in conjunction with imaging studies, cytology, and other pancreatic cyst fluid tumor markers: -Distinguishing between mucinous and nonmucinous pancreatic cysts -Determining the likely type of malignant pancreatic cyst
The study of pancreatic diseases is hindered by the organs deep seated location and especially lack of symptoms during the early stages of disease development and progression e.g. pancreatic cancer. This is particularly true of pancreatic cysts, the variety and the malignant potential of which encompass a broad spectrum. The radiological features distinguishing a benign from a pre-malignant to a frankly malignant cyst in the pancreas are frequently underwhelming and have lead to the clinical practice of sampling all but the most obvious. The yield of the aspirate in turn is frequently not of a quality upon which a clinical decision can be based.. Most would agree that the best approach for management of pancreatic cystic neoplasm lies in early diagnosis, ideally at a precancerous stage. The effectiveness and applicability of this study is the based on the ability of the cyst DNA analysis to stratify the patients at risk of developing pancreatic cancer based on the extent of accumulated ...
Conclusions: The novel commercial method of cyst fluid analysis allows for accurate measurement of cyst fluid CEA even on cyst fluid aspirates of less than 1ml, and potentially less than 100ul of fluid. This measurement tool increases the yield of EUS FNA for pancreatic cysts, particularly for those in whom cyst fluid volumes are small. By optimizing specimen handling, it is possible to satisfy information needs more effectively thereby contributing to more comprehensive and better diagnosis and management.
If you have a pancreatic cyst, it is important that you get a timely and accurate diagnosis to confirm whether or not your cyst contains cancer cells so that prompt treatment can occur.

  • Simple cysts are benign, requiring no further assessment unless aspiration is requested due to symptoms. (
  • Brain cysts may be asymptomatic or can cause a variety of different symptoms. (
  • Many of the symptoms caused by brain cysts are due to the cyst pressing on and applying pressure to the brain. (
  • What Are the Symptoms of a Large Ovarian Cyst? (
  • Depending on your condition, your doctor will determine the best treatment that will help alleviate your symptoms of Baker's cyst. (
  • The vast majority of cysts are coincidentally found during cross-sectional imaging done for other reasons than cyst-related symptoms. (
  • Depending on their size, ovarian cysts can cause symptoms. (

(
  • Signs and symptoms of breast cysts include: A smooth, easily movable round or oval breast lump with distinct edges Breast pain or tenderness in the area of the lump Increased lump size and tenderness just before menstruation Decreased lump size and resolution of other signs and symptoms after menstruation Having one or many simple breast cysts does not increase a person's risk of breast cancer. (
  • The doctor said these could be enlarged corpus luteum cysts, but that he can't be certain (especially because of their size and because there are two of them -- corpus luteums are typically solo cysts), so I am scheduled to have a 2nd ultrasound in 1 week from now (the 1st ultrasound was 2 months ago). (
  • The best way to know if ovarian cysts are of this sort (called functional or physiologic cysts because they provide a normal function), is to repeat the ultrasound after a menstrual period. (
  • w/ told me this is a normal cyst and would go away on it's own, and to come back in six weeks for another ultrasound. (
  • If you have a diagnostic ultrasound and a clear fluid cyst is discovered, chances are there is little to worry about. (
  • Ultrasound showed enlarge kidney and a large amount of free fluid in pelvis in a lot of pain daily wondered what treatment options are? (
  • The ultrasound findings are suggestive of benign fibroids and and collection of fluid in the tubes and uterine cavity . (
  • After evaluation and informed consent we performed an ultrasound-guided drainage resulted in collection of about 200 mL of a yellowish aspirate from the cyst location. (
  • 7 Abscesses features on ultrasound are complex multi-loculated fluid collections with internal debris and surrounding hyperemia (Figure 2). (
  • Fluid from your knee is drained using a needle that is guided by ultrasound. (
  • Ultrasound is frequently used to tell whether a lump is solid or filled with fluid (a cyst). (
  • Simple ovarian cysts are extremely common in women and do not require additional ultrasound surveillance or surgical removal, according to a new study of more than 72,000 women and close to 119,00 pelvic ultrasound exams over a dozen years. (
  • A routine ultrasound scan of an unborn baby usually will find a fetal abdominal cyst. (
  • The obstetrician (pregnancy specialist ) and radiologist will check the cyst with ultrasound scans every few weeks until birth. (
  • The baby's doctor checks ultrasound scans regularly to be sure the cyst goes away. (
  • A doctor may perform an ultrasound scan to identify the type and location of any cysts. (
  • Ultrasound will be used as a visual aid for guiding a fine-needle to the prostrate in order to draw fluid from any cysts. (
  • 1,5,6 Therefore, bedside ultrasound can be instrumental in defining the presence and location of fluid in patients with abdominal distention. (
  • This case highlights the utility of emergency physician performed ultrasound in the evaluation of abdominal distention and the challenges of sonographically distinguishing free intraperitoneal fluid from fluid within a cyst. (
  • Sagittal and transverse ultrasound images of the pelvis performed with a phased array probe demonstrate a large anechoic fluid collection contained within a cyst. (
  • Coronal ultrasound images of the right and left upper quadrants revealed no free fluid in Morison's pouch or around the spleen. (
  • You may need tests (like a CT scan, ultrasound, or biopsy) to confirm that it's a cyst. (
  • Your doctor may notice swelling on one of your ovaries and order an ultrasound to confirm the presence of a cyst. (
  • Initial ultrasound and contrast computed tomography were inconclusive because cysts could not be detected clearly, and a family history of renal cysts was not determined. (
  • Diagnostic imaging options include ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for cysts that are too small for detection by ultrasound. (
  • You should probably have had an ultrasound, blood tests and IV fluids to keep you hydrated. (
  • Ovarian cysts are usually diagnosed by ultrasound, CT scan, or MRI, and correlated with clinical presentation and endocrinologic tests as appropriate. (
  • Follow-up imaging in women of reproductive age for incidentally discovered simple cysts on ultrasound is not needed until 5 cm, as these are usually normal ovarian follicles. (
  • Breast ultrasound is considered the best option when diagnosing breast cysts because it is 95 to 100% accurate, it provides a clear image on the cyst's appearance (simple or complex) and it may also distinguish between solid lumps and fluid-filled cysts, which a mammogram cannot do. (
  • Is it common to have cysts on both ovaries? (
  • It is unusual for functional cysts to be present on both ovaries at the same time but it is not impossible. (
  • i had a ultra sound and they found fluid on my plevic and a 4cm cyst on my rt ovaries. (

  • In some cases, pelvic infections can spread to your ovaries and cause cysts to form. (
  • are fluid-filled sacs that develop in or on the ovaries. (
  • Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop in or on the ovaries. (
  • Patches form on the ovaries, creating cysts which bleed during periods. (
  • Often, this type of cyst come about because of the accumulation of dead skin cells or from the assembly of excess oil, which is normally secreted by the oil glands that are present on the skin surface. (
  • Knowing the type of cyst helps the baby's doctors know what kind of special care, if any, is needed at birth or in the first few weeks of life. (
  • This type of cyst doesn't involve joint degeneration. (
  • So it's important to find out what type of cyst you have. (
  • This type of cyst most often goes away in 1 to 3 months. (
  • What is the significance of finding free pelvic fluid? (
  • Ovarian cyst, fluid in endometrial cavity, pelvic pain? (
  • Yes, fluid in pelvis means there is pelvic inflammatory disease. (
  • Pelvic/Transvag sono on 8/22 showed partially ruptured ovarian cyst with small amount of free fluid. (
  • Pelvic MRI shows small cystic structure with adjacent second small contiguous cysts & small amount of free peritoneal fluid at culdesac. (
  • However, if a doctor suspects that someone has an ovarian cyst, they will typically conduct a pelvic examination. (
  • Several conditions can cause abdominal distention and mimic ascites, including hepatosplenomegaly, bowel obstruction, large renal cysts, and pelvic masses. (
  • Your doctor can usually find out whether you have an ovarian cyst by performing a pelvic exam . (
  • Ovarian cysts are most often found during routine pelvic exams, although some may need further testing. (
  • Ovarian cysts are often felt, if large enough, during routine pelvic exams. (
  • Doctors most often find ovarian cysts during routine pelvic exams. (
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease may also result in cysts. (
  • Although cellular content and fluid volume of PC aspirates are commonly suboptimal for routine ancillary studies, such as cytopathology and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) quantitation, DNA from lysed or exfoliated cyst epithelial lining shed into the PC fluid can be analysed for genetic abnormalities. (
  • Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) has been found to be the most reliable tumor marker for identifying those pancreatic cysts that are likely mucinous. (
  • CEA, Carcinoembryonic Antigen, Pancreatic Cyst Fluid - Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), a 180 kD intracellular adhesion molecule expressed in high concentrations in the fetus but normally not found in adult serum because the synthesis of this protein ceases after birth. (
  • Preoperative next-generation sequencing of pancreatic cyst fluid is highly accurate in cyst classification and detection of advanced neoplasia. (
  • A cross-sectional study involved 86 women with breast cysts (42 with simple cysts and 44 with complex cysts). (
  • 1 Sonographically, simple cysts are circumscribed anechoic masses with posterior acoustic enhancement and absent vascularity. (
  • Simple cysts are relatively common and usually clear on their own. (
  • Simple cysts are filled with fluid. (
  • Complex cysts are less common than simple cysts. (
  • Unlike simple cysts, complex cysts are not related to the typical menstrual cycle. (
  • Complex cysts are more likely to need treatment than simple cysts. (
  • Percutaneous catheters should not be placed to drain simple cysts, because the cavity becomes contaminated, leading to the development of hepatic abscess. (
  • These cysts will rupture, release the egg and often disappear. (
  • Meningitis, which is an inflammation of the meninges, can occur when brain cysts rupture, New York-Presbyterian notes. (
  • Large cysts increase the risk of torsion and rupture, and doctors recommend that they be removed. (
  • If the follicle does not rupture or release the egg, a follicular cyst (one type of functional cyst) may form. (
