Background. Studying the rare forms of ectopic pregnancy remains relevant to the present day.
Case report. This paper describes a clinical case of surgical treatment in a patient with ovarian pregnancy and focuses on preoperative diagnostic difficulties and the importance and appropriateness of assessing the totality of risk factors for ectopic pregnancy, medical history data, clinical presentations, serum β-hCG level changes, and diagnostic ultrasound techniques. The current diagnostic capabilities determine the choice of therapeutic policies addressing the least invasive interventions using high-tech organ-sparing procedures.
Conclusion. It is important to analyze cases of rare forms of ectopic pregnancy for an obstetrician/gynecologist’s clinical practice.
