Abstract

 

Round ligament varicosities are easily misdiagnosed as an obstructed hernia in a gravid patient. When this condition is diagnosed correctly, unnecessary intervention may be prevented. We aimed to determine the significance of round ligament varicosities in pregnancy and to describe their clinical presentation and sonographic appearance.
