Abstract
Ovarian pregnancy is comparatively rare form of ectopic pregnancy. Although earlier diagnosis is now possible due to the availability of quantitative beta-hCG measurement and the development of transvaginal ultrasonograghy, it is mostly difficult to diagnosis before surgery, and frequently misdiagnosed as a ruptured corpus luteum accompanied with massive hemoperitoneum. Definite diagnosis is made only by cytopathologic examination of tissue specimen. The treatment of ovarian pregnancy has been operative management including oophorectomy, salpingo-oophorectomy and ovarian wedge resection. But recently conservative management using laparoscopic technique has become the preferred treatment. We have experienced a case of primary ovarian pregnancy and reviewed it briefly.
