Abstract  Isolated descended inguinal ovary is a rarity, but it should be considered as a differential diagnosis of an inguinal mass at any age; in particular during female infancy and up to adulthood. Herein the authors report a case of asymptomatic isolated left descended inguinal ovary, with ipsilateral left ectopic pelvic kidney that was accidentally discovered a few years after menarche.
Key words:  Inguinal mass      Ovarian descent      Ectopic ovary      Pelvic kidney      Ovarian biopsy
