We present a rare case of cystic cervicitis in a 42-year-old woman who came to our unit suffering from primary infertility for one year. Her only complaint was infertility. She was not suffering from chronic pelvic pain or increased vaginal discharge neither before nor after marriage. Diagnosis of cystic cervicitis was made by both transvaginal ultrasound examination and MRI. As her main problem was infertility, she refrained from doing cone biopsy and opted for an ICSI trial and aspiration of the cervical cysts at the same time of ovum pick up (OPU). Ovum pick up resulted in the recovery of two oocytes. On the same setting and using the same needle, aspiration of all of the cervical cysts was performed successfully. Aspirated fluid was sent for cytology as well as culture and sensitivity. To our knowledge, this is the first case, in the english literature, to provide complete diagnosis of, and describe treatment of cystic cervicitis by transvaginal aspiration of the cysts.
