Advanced extrauterine pregnancy with a successful outcome is a rare event. A case is presented of a 34-year-old woman at 35 weeks gestation whose abdominal pregnancy was successfully managed. The diagnostic and management problems associated with abdominal pregnancy are discussed, and especially the controversial issues of the treatment of the placenta after delivery. The reasons for the high maternal and perinatal mortality associated with the condition are analyzed.
