This case report describes the presentation, diagnostic evaluation, and surgical management of a 30-year-old female patient who presented to the emergency department with severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and mild vaginal bleeding. The patient had a recent history of molar pregnancy followed by surgical evacuation, that was 2 weeks back. Initial evaluation revealed mainly right iliac fossa tenderness, and subsequent imaging showed bilateral hyper stimulated enlarged ovaries with multiple cysts and hemoperitoneum. The patient underwent urgent laparoscopy, which confirmed right ovarian and tubal torsion with extensive haemorrhage and necrosis. A right salpingoophorectomy was performed, and the left multiloculated ovarian cyst was drained. The patient recovered well postoperatively.
