Pelvic masses in girls have been the subject of much discussion in the ultrasound-computerized tomography literature. Specifically, ultrasound has confirmed that cystic masses tend to be benign while solid masses are considered malignant until proven otherwise. Complex masses still remain an area of diagnostic difficulty and clinical data are essential in reaching a reasonable diagnosis. This paper reviews pediatric pelvic masses in girls and the role ultrasound plays in their evaluation.
