We review some recent results concerning analytic continuation properties of the Cauchy transform of a domain in the complex plane, of a corresponding exponential transform and of the resolvent of a hyponormal operator associated with the domain.

The main result states the equivalence between the mentioned analytic continuations. As a corollary we obtain apriori regularity of boundaries admitting analytic continuation of the Cauchy transform.
