          Abstract

          While rare, abdominal pregnancies have a higher chance of maternal mortality, perinatal mortality and morbidity compared to normal and ectopic pregnancies, but on occasion a healthy viable infant can be delivered. Because tubal, ovarian and broad ligament pregnancies are as difficult to diagnose and treat as abdominal pregnancies, their exclusion from the most common definition of abdominal pregnancy has been debated. Others - in the minority - are of the view that abdominal pregnancy should be defined by a placentaimplanted into the peritoneum.
