Abstract  Ectopic pregnancy is defined as dislocation of a fertilized ovum anywhere other than in the cavity of uterus. Generally, the common site for dislocation is within fallopian tube, accounting for 95.5% of all ectopic gestations. Abdominal pregnancy is rare with a potentially life-threatening variation that resides within peritoneal cavity and the primary splenic pregnancy is even rarer. This report describes a patient with primary splenic pregnancy, who was successfully managed after splenectomy.
Key words:  Ectopic pregnancy      Splenic pregnancy      Case report
