Abstract
Ovarian pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy that is often difficult to diagnose. 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 in the corpus luteum, 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. We have experienced a case of ovarian pregnancy and reviewed it briefly.
Key Words: Ovarian pregnancy
