In their recent report, Hamrick and Fordham1 provided reassurance that neonatal ovarian cyst (OC) can be managed in pediatric practice. They nicely illustrated the diagnosis and treatment of a patient with OC, which was detected because of an abdominal mass and associated clinical symptoms. In addition to familiar clinical issues related to neonatal OC, mainly aspects of surgical management, we would like to add here another clinical aspect of the management of OC, that of endocrinology.
