Objective. To present the spectrum of sonographic findings associated with hemorrhagic ovarian cysts. Methods. Experience with making specific and correct diagnosis of hemorrhagic cysts with the use of sonography was reviewed, and the spectrum of sonographic findings was identified. Results. Endovaginal sonography facilitated excellent visualization of internal architectural details of an adnexal mass, which enabled specific diagnosis of hemorrhagic cysts instead of other adnexal masses. Conclusions. A hemorrhagic cyst is a common and important entity to recognize and diagnose correctly, and because it can be confused with more ominous conditions, it is important to recognize its specific diagnostic patterns.
