Paraovarian cysts constitute approximately 10% of all adnexal masses. Here, we present a case of a 7-week pregnant woman with a paraovarian cyst. The cyst was approximately the size of a 24-week pregnancy. The patient came with acute abdominal pain due to torsion of the paraovarian cyst. The conception following clomiphene citrate (CC) was a part of the treatment of infertility. In this case, CC was started without any investigations. From this case, we would like to suggest that even before starting a simple treatment such as clomiphene for infertility, a baseline ultrasound is essential.
