Pelvic congestion syndrome
 Discussion of Pelvic congestion syndrome
- Pelvic congestion syndrome involves vague symptoms, including chronic pelvic pain, that are associated with dilated ovarian veins and pelvic varices resulting from left renal vein reflux.
 Imaging Findings for Pelvic congestion syndrome
- CT and MR imaging findings of this condition include varicose veins around the uterus and ovaries with retrograde filling of ovarian veins.
- The uterus is enlarged, usually with engorged arcuate vessels in the myometrium.
- Some researchers consider ovarian veins with diameters greater than 5 mm pathognomonic for pelvic congestion syndrome, but this diagnostic criterion is not universally accepted.
