A 25-year-old infertile woman underwent laparoscopy because of a dermoid cyst of the left ovary and was found to have an ectopic ovary, to which an abnormal right fimbria was connected, with an isolated right ovary in the normal position and the bilateral segmental absence of the middle portion of the fallopian tubes. The complex of these anomalies is rare. A fundamental error might have existed in the mesenchyme of the gonadal ridges of the early embryo, rather than the epithelial origin of the müllerian and wolffian ducts.
