Abstract

Abdominal ectopic pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy, which has a high mortality. Herein, we present a case of ruptured primary abdominal ectopic pregnancy implanted on sigmoid mesocolon in a 36-year-old woman. This case report highlights the challenges faced by obstetrician-gynecologist in the diagnosis and management of abdominal ectopic pregnancy in a resource-low setting.
