A Case of Ovarian Pregnancy Managed by Pelviscopic Surgery

Abstract

Ovarian pregnancy is one of the rarest types of extrauterine pregnancy, which is difficult to diagnose clinically and even intraoperatively. Clinical presentations of ovarian and tubal pregnancies are similar and differentiation can be made only after microscpic examination of tissue specimens. 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 ovarian pregnancy with laparoscopic removal with a brief review of the literatures.
