Abstract

Abdominal pregnancy is a rare and serious type of extrauterine pregnancy that is estimated to be approximately 1% to 4% of all ectopic pregnancies with omental pregnancy is the least common. An incidental case of a primary omental pregnancy was treated by laparoscopic partial omentectomy. The aim of this presentation is to keep in mind that pregnancy can exist in unusual locations, so a thorough inspection of the abdominal cavity is imperative.
