Ovarian pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy, with a reported incidence of approximately 3% of all ectopic pregnancies. We report a primary ovarian pregnancy in a 29-year-old woman with a history of intrauterine device. The patient was admitted to the emergency department with signs and symptoms of acute abdomen with hemoperitoneum. Diagnostic laparoscopy and pelviscopic right ovarian cystectomy were performed. On histopathological examination, products of conception embedded in the ovarian tissue were seen, which were confirmatory of primary ovarian pregnancy. This article is to describe a case of ovarian pregnancy and to discuss reviews of the literature.
Key Words: Primary ovarian pregnancy, Ectopic pregnancy, Intrauterine device(IUD)
