13 - Ruptured ovarian pregnancy and its laparoscopic management: Case report

Osman Balcı, Fedi Ercan, Mustafa Cihan Avunduk

Ovarian pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy but it is the most common type of nontubal ectopic pregnancy. Many times it is operated with a misdiagnosis of ruptured tubal ectopic pregnancy or hemorrhagic corpus luteum. The high-resolution transvaginal ultrasonography is a valuable tool for diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy but ovarian pregnancy still remains a diagnostic problem and a continuous challenge to the gynecologist. The correct diagnosis is made at the time of surgery and confirmation is by histopathological report. The case here presented was managed laparoscopically, and the diagnosis was based on surgical and histopathological findings.

Keywords: Ovarian pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, laparoscopy
