Conclusion

Hyperreactio luteinalis is a benign condition causing enlargement of the ovaries. Recognition of HL is important, since misinterpretation has resulted in unnecessary surgery, often with sterilization. Follow-up with serial Beta-hCG is crucial in managing these cases. They can be complicated by rupture, torsion or hemorrhage, so careful monitoring is required. This case is unique as there were only few reported cases of bilateral corpus luteal cysts associated with partial hydatiform molar pregnancy in the literature.
