Prepared for the Unexpected: Accessory Ovaries with Abernethy Malformation

Abstract

Supernumerary and accessory ovaries are collectively coined ectopic ovaries. These are rarely encountered by the benign gynecologist and are often discovered incidentally during evaluation for other gynecologic, gastrointestinal, or urologic pathologies. We report the presentation of a patient with multiple accessory ovaries in addition to a rare congenital anomaly of the splanchnic vasculature called an Abernethy malformation. Incidental identification of ectopic ovaries necessitates a search for additional malformations outside of the genitourinary tract that can have larger implications for long-term health.
