Abstract
Abdominal pregnancy is a rare form of extrauterine pregnancy which is account for 1.4% of all ectopic pregnancy cases. Among these omental pregnancy is extremely rare and may cause life-threatening massive hemorrhage as a complication. But the diagnosis of early abdominal pregnancy is difficult because of non specific findings about clinical history, physical examination and ultrasonography. Risk factors related to ectopic pregnancy include inflammation, infection and surgery, but endometriosis is an uncommon factor. We present a case of the ruptured primary omental pregnancy associated with endometriosis with a review of the literature.
Key Words: Omental pregnancy, Abdominal pregnancy, Endometriosis
