CONCLUSIONS: The ultrasound characteristics differ widely from typical mature ovarian teratoma. Features such as, solid roundish components with smooth contours, struma pearls, acoustic shadowing and occasionally signs of dermoid are clues and may help preoperatively to differentiate benign struma from malignant adnexal lesions.

We read the publication on “Femur-sparing pattern of abnormal fetal growth in pregnant women from New York City after maternal Zika virus infection” with a great interest.1 Walker et al concluded that “An unusual femur-sparing pattern of fetal growth restriction was detected in the majority of fetuses with congenital Z IKV exposure. Fetal body ratios may represent a more sensitive ultrasound biomarker to detect viral injury in nonmicrocephalic fetuses that could impart long-term risk for complications of congenital ZIKV infection.”1 We would like to share ideas on this finding based on the expe...
