A 28-year-old Korean woman with a history of both salpingectomies due to two prior tubal pregnancies at other institutions conceived a heterotopic cornual pregnancy after in vitro fertilization-embryo transfer. The patient was referred to the emergency department with an abrupt onset of lower abdominal pain at the 7th gestational week. We performed an emergent laparoscopic right cornual resection. The subsequent antenatal course was unremarkable. There were no obstetric or surgery-related complications. The patient delivered a healthy baby of 3,340 g via Cesarean section due to failure to progress at term.
