SANTOS, Luiz Carlos et al. Abdominal pregnancy at term with live fetus: a case report. Rev. Bras. Ginecol. Obstet. [online]. 1999, vol.21, n.10, pp.611-615. ISSN 1806-9339.

Term abdominal pregnancy with live fetus is an obstetrical rarity with high fetal and maternal morbidity and mortality. The authors present a case of abdominal pregnancy in a 43-year-old woman. The diagnosis was made only at term (37 weeks) by clinical findings and echography. Exploratory laparotomy was performed and a living female newborn weighing 2,570 g was extracted. Apgar scores were 3, 6 and 8 at the 1st, 5th and 10th minutes, respectively. Placenta was inserted in the omentum and was removed without complications. Postoperative course was uneventful and both mother and child were discharged healthy.
