The macrocystic or oligocystic variant of serous cystadenoma is uncommon and difficult to distinguish from mucinous cystic neoplasm by imaging.
Many authors described a higher frequency of pancreatic intraepithelial neoplasia in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, but also reported that it may be present in patients with the following disorders of the pancreas: mucinous cystic neoplasms, neuroendocrine tumors, chronic pancreatitis, serous cystadenomas, acinar cell tumors, and pseudopapillary tumors [9].

The most common benign adnexal mass observed in our study was mucinous cystadenoma, closely followed by mature cystic teratoma and serous cystadenoma. This observation is similar to previous studies.
The commonest benign lesion was hemorrhagic luteal cyst in 50(20.2%) cases followed by follicular cyst and serous cystadenoma in 49(19.8%) each.
In case of connection, a diagnosis of IPMN could be suggested [24], whereas when connection is not identified, alternative diagnoses should include serous cystadenoma or mucinous cystadenoma.
Among benign, most common diagnoses were follicular / luteal cysts (34.8%) followed by serous cystadenoma (24.6%) and serous cysts (15.4%).
