An image of the right hydroureter was found, which was erroneously interpreted as hydrosalpinx in the first evaluation.
Patients in whom the contrast failed to outline both or one tube and with no subsequent spillage were considered to have bilateral or unilateral tubal blockage while those with dilated tubes were classified as having hydrosalpinx.
Occlusion at the ampullary end of the fallopian tube results in Hydrosalpinx, commonly caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, outlines as dilated part of tube with no intra peritoneal spill of contrast.
The deleterious impact of hydrosalpinx on fertility is best exemplified by studies showing a 50% reduction in IVF pregnancy rates in their presence (1).

Regarding the tubular appearance of cyst the first possible diagnosis was hydrosalpinx and then ovarian cyst.
The sequelae of PID that are responsible for infertility include chronic interstitial salpingitis, hydrosalpinx, salpingitis isthmica nodosa, and periadnexal adhesions.
Cornual occlusion and hydrosalpinx were the leading abnormalities of the fallopian tube, being 32.
The effectiveness of hydrosalpinx treatment on patients needing assisted reproductive techniques
A clinical history of a prior fallopian tube lesion (eg, tubal pregnancy, hydrosalpinx, chronic salpingitis, or salpingitis isthmica nodosum) is often (but not always) present.
Hydrosalpinx has the potential of reducing fertility via a number of mechanisms, including deprivation of embryos of nutrients in the endometrial cavity and embryonic toxicity associated with exposure to hydrosalpinx fluid.
