Aristide Le Dantec hospital in Dakar, Senegal
Objectives: To specify the diagnostic difficulties and the criteria allowing a conservative load taking.
Observation: We report a case of abdominal pregnancy with live fetus diagnosed ultrasonically at 23WA in a context of abdominal urgency on the background of secondary amenorrhea with prospective follow-up and birth at 36WA. Ultrasound is essential to diagnosis. The treatment is always surgical and the difficulty is dominated by the removal of the placenta. The fetal prognosis is reserved and the maternal mortality is not negligible.
Conclusion: Abdominal pregnancy is a rare event. Her diagnosis is difficult and a conservative attitude of pregnancy is possible.
Keywords: Abdominal pregnancy, Ultrasonography, Laparotomy.
