These cysts can form as paramesonephric duct cysts, mesonephric duct cysts and mesonephric tubule cysts.
Clinical symptoms are often nonspecific and may include persistent estrus, abdominal pain and a palpable mass in the central abdomen.
A presumptive diagnosis is usually achieved with abdominal ultrasonography, showing a mass lesion effect.
Treatment is usually curative with ovariohysterectomy.
