Abstract
Approximately 1% of ectopic pregnancies are abdominal and may result in life threatening complication. In particular, the omental pregnancy is exceedingly rare and less than 10 cases of omental pregnancy were reported in the world. Even some author insisted there is no real omental pregnancy. Actually the abdominal pregnancy was the result of abortion or rupture of tubal pregnancy or rarely abdominal implantation after uterine rupture. In several select first trimester patients with abdominal pregnancies, laparoscopic managements. were recently reported. We report the first case of omental pregnancy, which diagnosed by chance at diagnostic laparoscopy, 6 weeks after her last menstrual period.
