Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We herein report the case of two young nulliparous women with no history of amenorrhea who came to our attention due to the finding of a hypervascularized solid adnexal mass. In both cases a malignant tumor of tubal origin was suspected at transvaginal sonography. Eventually the masses turned out to be the result of a spontaneously failed unknown tubal ectopic pregnancy, with massive vasodilatation of surrounding pelvic blood vessels surrounding the trophoblastic tissue.
