Author information

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Institute of Child and Mother Health, Dhaka, Bangladesh.


A case of primary ovarian pregnancy proceeding upto term superimposed by another intrauterine pregnancy is presented. Compound extrauterine and intrauterine pregnancy is a rare obstetric phenomenon and still rarer is a primary ovarian pregnancy proceeding upto the term. The condition was diagnosed at laparotomy during the second trimester of current pregnancy. Diagnostic laparotomy was done because the ovarian pregnancy was mimicking an ovarian tumur. The ovarian pregnancy was successfully managed by surgery. Normal vaginal delivery of a term intrauterine pregnancy occurred in due time. The difficulty of diagnosing the heterotopic pregnancy is discussed and the clinico-pathological features of primary term ovarian pregnancy is emphasized, as it is a very rare condition.
