Abstract

PURPOSE:

We present a case of ectopic pregnancy occurring in the stump of a remnant fallopian tube following ipsilateral adnexectomy for a mature cystic teratoma.

METHODS:

She had a laparoscopic salpingectomy.

RESULTS:

We hypothesize the intrauterine transmigration of the fecundated ovum.

CONCLUSIONS:

The authors emphasize the rarity of the observed case.
