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.
