PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of Morgagni hydatid (MH) on infertility by comparing women known to be fertile and infertile with respect to MH frequency. METHODS: The study was conducted in Gaziantep University Faculty of Medicine with the precipitation of total 455 patients. The 240 of them were pregnant to whom planned cesarean section (C/S) and the other 215 were infertile one who have undergone diagnostic laparoscopy. Fertile Group (Group 1) consisted of women whom have become spontaneously pregnant without any kind of infertility management. These are planned to undergo C/S with different indications. Infertile group (Group 2) consisted of women diagnosed as unexplained infertility and planned to undergo diagnostic laparoscopy according to ASRM 2006 guidelines. The frequency, number, and the bilaterality of the MH were evaluated during the C/S in fertile group and diagnostic laparoscopy in infertile group. SPSS was used for statistical analyses. RESULTS: The MH frequency was higher in Group 2 than Group 1 (P < 0.05). The bilaterality of MHs were significantly higher in Group 2 than Group 1 (P < 0.05).The number of the MHs were significantly higher in Group 2 than Group 1 (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest a possible effect of MH on fertility. The theory of MH disturbing tubal motility with respect to the pick-up and transport of ovum appears logical in this aspect.
