Primary Ovarian Pregnancy: A Case Report

  • 1Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ilsin Christian Hospital, Busan, Korea. iinjung@orgio.net


Primary ovarian pregnancy is rare form of ectopic pregnancy. It can be diagnosed if the only implantation occurs in the ovary. The clinical diagnosis of ovarian pregnancy is difficult. Owing to the availability of sensitive assays for human chorionic gonadotropin and the development of transvaginal ultrasonography, early diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy has been made more feasible. But clinical and even intraoperative diagnosis of ovarian pregnancy is still difficult and only microscopic examination of tissue specimen can confirm the diagnosis. Misdiagnosis is common because it can be confused with a ruptured corpus luteum. Laparoscopic wedge resection is treatment of choice. The authors present a case of ovarian pregnancy with a brief review of the literatures.
