Ovarian  cysts  contribute  a  major  share  of  cystic  lesions  diagnosed  in  antenatal  life. quite  often,  these cysts are benign and resolve spontaneously. Some times these cysts got twisted, resulting in ovarian loss. We report a case of a patient, presented with acute intestinal obstruction. At operation, an auto-amputated ovarian cyst and ipsilateral tubal atresia were noted, as incidental findings, in addition to the ileal stenosis. We appraised that auto-amputated ovarian cyst caused the tubal and ileal compression sequels.


Key words: ovarian cyst, intestine, fallopian tube, atresia
