Abstract 

Heterotopic pregnancy is increasingly being diagnosed since the advent of assisted reproductive technology involving the use of superovulatory drugs and/or in-vitro fertilization and the availability of high-resolution ultrasound scans. There are reports of Heterotopic tubal pregnancies following clomiphene use. Heterotopic ovarian pregnancies are however rare. Clomiphene citrate, which is widely used in the primary care setting to treat anovulatory infertility, is felt safe. We present a case of heterotopic ovarian pregnancy following treatment with clomiphene citrate. The diagnosis and management of heterotopic ovarian pregnancy are also discussed.
