 We report a case of an ovarian abscess that was associated with appendicitis. A 19-year-old woman with lower abdominal pain visited our hospital. CT showed pelvic polycystic abscess. After conservative treatment with antibiotics, the abscess remained. Then, laparoscopic surgery was performed urgently under the preoperative diagnosis of perforated appendicitis with intraabdominal abscess. Intraoperatively, the right ovary was swelling with abscess and adhered to the appendix. The findings suggested that the appendicitis penetrated into the right ovary, so the capsule of the ovary was opened for drainage and appendectomy was performed. The patient was discharged with no complication and has no recurrence of the abscess. There have been only few reported cases of appendicitis with ovarian abscess treated by laparoscopic surgery.
