Pregnancy luteoma is a rare non-neoplastic tumor like mass of the ovary. They are usually asymptomatic and found incidentally during imaging or surgery. They regress spontaneously after delivery. We present a case in a 28-year-old female patient with an ovarian mass, which was found incidentally during cesarean section. Histopathological examination showed features of luteoma of pregnancy. Recognition of this entity is important so that unnecessary oophorectomy, with concomitant risk to both the mother and the fetus, is avoided.
