Abstract

 Background: PREGNANCY LUTEOMA is a rare non neoplastic condition of the ovary. It is usually asymptomatic and found incidentally during imaging in pregnancy or during cesarean section. PREGNANCY LUTEOMA can also occur after ECTOPIC PREGNANCY.Case Presentation: A 30 year old female presented to G.B. Pant Hospital, Andaman and Nicobar Islands institute of Medical Sciences, Port Blair in October 2015 with abdominal pain. After initial investigations, exploratory laporotomy was done for ruptured ECTOPIC PREGNANCY. Enlarged ovary was removed along with the ruptured portion of fallopian tube. Histopathological examination revealed solid aggregates of large cells with abundant eosinophilic cytoplasm; diagnosis of PREGNANCY LUTEOMA was given.Conclusion: It must be considered in the differential diagnosis of OVARIAN MASSES in pregnant females that early diagnosis of this entity may avoid unnecessary radical surgery.
