Rupture is a rare complication of ovarian cysts diagnosed during the prenatal period. We present a case that focuses on the postnatal sonographic appearance of rupture of an ovarian cyst after vaginal delivery. Histopathologic correlation is provided. The main sonographic features include complicated ascites and a collapsed cystic structure in the abdomen. Ruptured ovarian cyst should be included in the differential diagnosis of unexplained ascites in a newborn girl.
