Abstract
Ovarian Pregnacy is a rare form of ectopic pregnacy. Its estimated overall incidence is highly variable, but improved diagnosis of acute hemoperitoneum of ovarian pregnancy may reveal a high incidence than reported earlier. Ovarian pregnancy occurs in the corpus luteum, and is usually accompanied with the rupture of the ovary and massive hemoperitoneum. It presents as a hemorragic ovary and frequently misdiagnosed as a ruptured corpus luteum. Risk facters to ovarian pregnacy include a history of pelvic inflammatory disease(PID), prior pelvic surgery, and use of an intrauterine contraceptive device(IUD). We have experienced two cases of ovarian pregnancy and reviewed it briefly.
Key Words: Ovarian pregnancy
