In 33 women aged 13-80, clear pelvic cysts were aspirated. The diameter of the cysts was between 4-11 cm and the aspiration, by either the vaginal or abdominal routes, was ultrasonically guided. In 25 cases (76%) there was no recurrence of a cyst during continuing follow-up. In 8 cases in which a cyst recurred, 4 were operated on and benign tumors were found. Ultrasonically guided aspiration is appropriate treatment for clear pelvic cysts.
