Hyperreactio luteinalis is a rare condition in pregnancy that is caused by high β-human chorionic gonadotropin (β-HCG) levels or abnormal sensitivity of the β-hCG receptor. It is mostly seen in patients with trophoblastic disease, multiple pregnancy or after fertility treatment. Here we report a case 24  year old female conceived spontaneously and small ovarian cysts in first trimester and full blown cystic masses in third trimester diagnosed during lower segment caesarean section.A wedge biopsy was taken to confirm the diagnosis.The postpartum period was uneventful. The biopsy reported it as hyperreactio luteinalis. Hence, the rarely seen asymptomatic condition may put the surgeon in dilemma for decision.
