Ruptured ovarian artery aneurysm is rare. Of the eight cases previously reported, seven were diagnosed postpartum. Our case of a ruptured right ovarian artery aneurysm was associated with massive retroperitoneal bleeding. The probable time of rupture could be traced to the second stage of labor. This case indicates the need for early evaluation of atypical flank pain during labor.
