Objective: A case report of a patient with interstitial pregnancy and a history of hyperprolactinemia. Case report: A 30-year-old woman was hospitalized for a suspicion of ectopic pregnancy and referred for laparoscopy. During the laparoscopic surgery, interstitial pregnancy was dia­gnosed and solved with cornuostomy. Conclusion: Ectopic interstitial pregnancy represents a serious worldwide issue because unrecognized, it can endanger a woman’s life, despite advances in ultrasound examination, the dia­gnosis often remains inaccurate. Laparoscopic surgical approach with evacuation of pregnancy with subsequent uterus suture represents one of the possible approaches. This method is minimally invasive and safe.
