Abstract

A unique case of intraperitoneal fetus-in-fetu attached to an ovary is presented. An asymptomatic newborn girl was found to have a mobile cystic mass in right side of her abdomen. Radiological investigations showed fetus-in-fetu. During laparotomy, an intraperitoneal fetus-in-fetu was found attached to right ovary and vascular pedicle to ovarian vessels. Only 79 cases of fetus-in-fetu have been reported, and this is the first such case attached to an ovary.
