Abstract

We report the case of a 30-year-old woman with a right adnexal mass resembling an ovarian cyst who declined diagnostic laparoscopy and requested treatment with acupuncture. The patient was treated with Saam acupuncture for 14 weeks. After treatment, transvaginal sonography revealed disappearance of the right adnexal mass. No adverse effects of the Saam acupuncture treatment were reported.
