Lelah Grossman, Mark Horowitz, Jeremy Neuman, Richard Sidlow

Canal of Nuck cysts/hydroceles are rare occurrences in females of all age groups. We describe a case of a female neonate presenting with a labial mass which sonographically resembled a testicle. Upon surgical exploration, it was found to be a hydrocele of the canal of Nuck. We also review the literature on canal of Nuck cysts/hydroceles in the pediatric age group.
