AbstractA case is presented in which laparoscopic salpingostomy was performed for unruptured tubal pregnancy. The patient remained well with falling hCG levels until 41 days later, when she developed acute abdominal pain. Laparotomy confirmed haemoperitoneum as a result of haemorrhage from implantation of trophoblastic tissue on the omentum. This case report highlights the potential risk of residual gestational products in sites other than the fallopian tube and the fact that hCG monitoring after the initial operation may not fully guarantee complete clearance.
