Ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS) is a rare condition in which ovarian tissue persists at the site of prior oophorectomy and often causes debilitating pelvic pain. Gold standard of treatment is surgical resection. We report a case of persistent ORS in a 44-year-old female who was successfully treated with ovarian artery embolization after failure of standard medical and gynecologic therapies. The ovarian tissue remnant was reduced by 75% in volume, and the patient was near symptom-free four months after the procedure.
