Primary ovarian ectopic pregnancy, i.e., the implantation of the gestational sac in the ovary, is one of the rarest forms of ectopic pregnancy. Its incidence after natural conception ranges from 1 in 2000 to 1 in 60 000 deliveries and accounts for 3% of all ectopic pregnancies. The diagnosis is intricate and based on surgical and histopathological observations. The management is, in spite of medical improvement, based on surgery. We present a case of a 10-wk ectopic ovarian pregnancy managed laparoscopically, and we describe, through a review of the literature, the specific symptomatology, diagnostic criteria, and treatment of this particular pathology.
