Abstract: A 15-year-old female rhesus macaque was showing signs of bleeding from the vulva, while no other signs were noted. The animal was treated symptomatically with no improvement. On abdominal laparoscopy, a small transparent growth was discovered on both of the uterine horns, between the ovaries and fallopian tubes, and after thorough examination was diagnosed as a paraovarian cyst. The left cyst was larger (5-6 cm) than the right cyst (3-4 cm). Both of the cysts were smooth and transparent due to accumulated fluid. The cysts were aspirated and removed by bipolar laparoscopy cauterization.
