Ovarian ectopic pregnancy is an uncommon presentation of ectopic gestation, where the gestational sac is implanted within the ovary. Primary ovarian ectopic pregnancy is random and chance occurrence with estimated frequency ranging from 1 in 2 100 to 1 in 7 000 pregnancies. The diagnosis is seldom made clinically, that is, before surgery. Early detection permits removal of the ectopic pregnancy without excessive removal of healthy ovarian tissue. A case of acute abdomen that certified Spiegelberg's criteria at laparotomy and histological confirmation of ovarian pregnancy has been presented.
