Abstract

Abstract A case of an incarcerated, retroflexed gravid uterus in a 29-year-old patient with a right ovarian cyst in the 14 th week of her second pregnancy was presented. In 1999, at the age of 18, the patient had undergone enucleation of a dermoid cyst of the left ovary by laparotomy and a segment of the right ovary had been collected. After conservative treatment trial, the patient was qualified for a surgical procedure. Right ovarian cyst enucleation was performed. Left ovary adhesions with epiploic appendices of sigmoid colon were released and the uterus was reached from retroflexion. The patient, with saved pregnancy, was discharged from the hospital in the state of good health on the sixth day after the surgery.
