Abstract: Abdominal pregnancy is a situation where the pregnancy is implanted in the peritoneal cavity exclusive of tubal, ovarian or intraligamental pregnancy. It is a very rare occurrence; it presents a diagnostic and management dilemma and can be associated with high maternal/infant morbidity and mortality. We present a case of a 27year old G3P2+0,2Alive who presented at 32weeks gestation with abdominal pain, severe Anaemia and had laparotomy and delivered a life female infant weighing 1.4kg. The patient developed sepsis, Eclampsia and had second laparotomy for placental removal.
