Abstract

Ovarian pregnancy occurs in the corpus luteum mostly, and is usually accompanied with the rupture of the ovary and massive hemoperitoneum. It presents as a hemorrhagic ovary and frequently misdiagnosed as a ruptured corpus luteum. Risk factors to ovarian pregnancy include a history of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), prior pelvic surgery, use of an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) and ovulation induction. We have experienced one case of ovarian pregnancy and reviewed it briefly.
