Abstract

Ovarian pregnancy is rare form of ectopic pregnancy occurring in 0.5-1% of all ectopic pregnancies. But the presenting symptom is very similar and difficult to distinguish with other forms of ectopic pregnancy. We report a case of ovarian pregnancy mimicking cornual pregnancy managed with laparoscopy. Early detection is important role in preserving fertility to avoid the ablation of functional ovarian tissue. The diagnostic criteria, etiology, and management are discussed.
