Abstract  
Abdominal pregnancy is estimated to account for 1.3% of all ectopic pregnancies. Laparoscopic treatment of intact and even ruptured abdominal pregnancies is becoming more common. Here, the authors report the first single-port laparoscopic resection of an abdominal pregnancy, providing a detailed description of the procedures. At laparoscopy, a dense tissue clot was found implanted in the Douglas pouch with no signs of tubal abortion. The diagnosis of abnormal pregnancy was made and the tissue was removed successfully. In conclusion, we could consider that single-port laparoscopic surgery for an abdominal pregnancy is a feasible surgical technique.
Key words:  Abdominal pregnancy      Ectopic pregnancy      Single-port laparoscopy
