Ectopic ovary is a rare anomaly that can be associated with unicornuate uterus and renal anomalies. Intestinal rotational anomalies are failure of normal rotation and this arrest in development can predispose to develop a malfixated midgut that is a risk factor for volvulus and significant morbidity and mortality especially in early childhood. Cyclic abdominal pain is a common symptom for both of two distinct pathologies in adolescent ages. Here, we report a case of unicornuate uterus together with right ectopic ovary and intestinal malrotation.
