This case report presents a "true" ovarian pregnancy in a women using a Dalkon shield. The gestational sac was implanted in the ovary close to the corpus luteum and contained a normally developed embryo of Carnegie Stage 11. A morphologic description of the embryo is given. The importance of a morphologic description of the conceptus in cases of ovarian pregnancy is discussed.
This a case report of a true ovarian pregnancy and a morphologic description of the fetal development. Ovarian pregnancy, a specialized type of ectopic pregnancy, is a rare occurrence, with a 1/40,000 rate of occurrence. Only 1 of every 200 ectopic pregnancies is ovarian. Although there is an increased incidence of ovarian pregnancy in IUD users, the device itself is not believed to cause the condition. 1 researcher has calculated that tubal pregnancies are simply less well prevented by the IUD and ovarian pregnancies are not prevented at all.
