Ovarian pregnancy in association with an intrauterine device.Int J Gynaecol Obstet. 1983 Feb; 21(1):65-70.IJ
Within a 1-year period, two cases of primary ovarian pregnancy associated with an intrauterine device (IUD) occurred in our institution. The clinical signs and symptoms were similar to those in any other ectopic pregnancy. Both cases satisfied the criteria of Spiegelberg. The final diagnosis was based on the histopathological findings. A review of the literature is presented summarizing the 53 cases reported until now. The association between IUD, ectopic pregnancy in general, and ovarian pregnancy in particular is discussed.
