The accessory ovary can be defined as an extraovarian tissue that is located near the normal ovaries and is connected to the broad ligament, infundibulopelvic ligament or utero-ovarian ligament. It has very rarely been reported. The majority was found during abdominopelvic surgeries for any other purposes, because they were usually small and less than 1 cm in diameter adn gave no particular symptoms related simply to their presence. We reported a case of accessory ovary in which developed a simple cyst of a largest diameter of 12 cm, and discussed the significance of the accessory ovary in clinical and pathological aspects.
