Abstract

Abdominal pregnancy is an uncommon but life-threatening form of ectopic pregnancy. It is associated with high maternal/fetal morbidity and mortality. We present a rare case of term abdominal pregnancy resulting from anterior uterine wall dehiscence, in a 36-year-old woman with three previous caesarean sections. The diagnosis was made at laparotomy for the fourth “caesarean section”.
