Ovarian choriocarinoma is a rare tumor and has not been described before in a true hermaphrodite condition. A 23-year-old karyotype 46XX parous female was admitted to hospital because of amenorrhea, irregular vaginal bleeding, an adnexal mass, and an increased beta-hCG serum level. Ectopic pregnancy was suspected three times and exploratory laparoscopy done each time removing the right ovarian mass and local pelvic and omental spread. Final pathology revealed a true hermaphrodite state with testicular tissue with distinct tubules, ovarian tissue with follicles, and ovarian choriocarinoma with necrosis and hemorrhage. She received chemotherapy followed by radical pelvic surgery.
