Abstract
Primary ovarian ectopic pregnancy has remained a rare event. It is difficult preoperatively to diagnose and differentiate ovarian pregnancy from hemorrhagic ovarian cyst and tubal ectopic pregnancy. However, improved diagnosis of acute hemoperitoneum of ovarian origin may reveal a higher incidence than reported earlier. The diagnostic criteria were described in 1878 by Spiegelberg, which comprise that the pregnancy is in the ovary and does not involve the tube. Ovarian pregnancy occurs within the ovary and on the corpus luteum, usually with rupture of the ovary and a massive hemoperitoneum. We report a relatively intact primary ovarian pregnancy with a brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: Ovarian pregnancy, Ectopic pregnancy
