Hemangioma of the ovary is a very rare lesion, although the ovary itself is a highly vascularized organ. In the literature review, about 40 cases were reported all of which were small in size and they were usually identified incidentally. The age range spanned from 4 months to 81 years. Cavernous hemangioma was the most common histologic type. We experienced a case of cavernous hemangioma of the left ovary in a 26 year-old pregnant woman. The lesion was 8x6x2cm in size with well demarcated margin. The cut surface was purple to bluish red in color and had a spongy-like appearance. Microscopically, it was composed of dilated vascular spaces with a common wall.
