Abstract

Ectopic ovary is a rare gynecologic entity. A variety of synonymous terms such as ectopic ovary, supernumerary ovary, accessory ovary, and autoamputation of the ovary have been used to describe this condition. The etiology for ectopic ovary has not been elucidated, but several mechanisms have been proposed. They are categorized as either congenital (embryologically derived) or acquired. This report presents two cases of ectopic ovary resulting from different causes and one case of potential ectopic ovary.
