Background: The incidence of recurrent ovarian cyst in pregnancy is rare. However, complications such as torsion, rupture, infection, haemorrhage and obstructed labour may occur. Thus, surgical removal is required to avoid such complications.

Case: A 27-year-old parity 1 with history of laparoscopic cystectomy during her first pregnancy presented with recurrent ovarian cyst in her second pregnancy at 13 weeks of gestation. Removal of ovarian cyst was done laparoscopically without significant complications. The remaining of her pregnancy was uncomplicated, and she delivered a healthy infant at term.

Conclusion: Laparoscopic cystectomy is safe and should be the gold standard in pregnant women.
