Paragonimiasis caused by Paragonimus westermani is essentially a pulmonary disorder, but it is also known to cause ectopic parasitism at various sites in human host such as the brain, muscle, liver, spinal cord and spleen. Ectopic parasitism of the female genital tract, especially the ovary is relatively rare. We have experienced a case of a 62-year-old Korean woman with asymptomatic ectopic paragonimiasis in the salpinx , ovary, and cul de sac.
