Objective: To present a case of ovarian ectopic pregnancy successfully treated with laparoscopy-assisted local injection of etoposide. Design: Case report. Setting: University-affiliated teaching hospital. Patient(s): A 33-year-old woman with the diagnosis of an ovarian pregnancy. Intervention(s): Laparoscopically assisted local injection of etoposide. Main Outcome Measure(s): Successful treatment of the ovarian ectopic pregnancy, with preservation of the ovary. Result(s): The patient was successfully treated, and she had normal menstruation after surgery. Conclusion(s): Treatment of ovarian ectopic pregnancy with a laparoscopy-assisted local injection of etoposide might be a less invasive choice that can circumvent the systemic side effects of the medication.
