Abstract

Ectopic pregnancy occurs very rarely with an incidence of 1.5% to 2% in all pregnancies and more commonly, in young highly fertile multiparous women using intrauterine device. Here, we presented a case of young multiparous lady who presented with irregular bleeding since the last 2 months. Ultrasound was done which showed a large right sided ovarian mass with free fluid in the abdomen. She was taken up for exploratory laparotomy followed by right oophorectomy after a verbal and written consent in view of ruptured corpus luteal cyst/ruptured ovarian ectopic pregnancy. Intraoperatively, a large right ruptured ovarian ectopic pregnancy was seen, which was also confirmed on histopathological examination.
