Management of cystic adnexal lesions diagnosed during pregnancy is a challenging issue for obstetricians. The range of treatment options changes from immediate surgery to close follow-up. This pictorial essay illustrates the magnetic resonance imaging findings of various cystic adnexal lesions in pregnant patients. Magnetic resonance imaging may help in better characterization of some of the cystic adnexal lesions diagnosed during pregnancy without exposing the fetus to ionizing radiation.
