Choriocarcinoma of ovary is a rare aggressive tumor of ovary. It may be gestational or nongestational tumor. High index of suspicion is required for diagnosis in reproductive age group females. Here, we present a case report of a 30-year-old female who was operated for ectopic pregnancy but was diagnosed as ovarian choriocarcinoma on histopathology. The patient had abnormally high beta-human chorionic gonadotropin levels with history of amenorrhea and negative urine pregnancy test. On laparotomy, a mass of 8 cm × 10 cm was found which was confirmed as choriocarcinoma on histopathological examination. The patient was managed with chemotherapy and responded well to treatment.
