Overview

This report concerns now 40-year-old healthy woman who was born alive and healthy from an ectopic pregnancy in the abdominal cavity, with placental localization on the omentum. This was a historical case report 40 years ago, as at that time doctors had little information about similar case in the world. Even today, in the era of modern medicine, we find only rare cases where a child developed outside the uterine cavity is born healthy and without developmental deformities. The mother subsequently had a normal intrauterine pregnancy 2 years later, ending with a caesarean section and the birth of a healthy boy.
