Abstract
Omental pregnancy is an extremely rare form of abdominal pregnancy that may cause life threatening massive hemorrhage in case of rupture. It may occur by primary implantation of the fertilized ovum in the omentum. The diagnosis is very difficult, but prompt surgical intervention is required when it is suspected, because perinatal mortality and maternal mortality in abdominal pregnancy were 85~95% and 0.5~6%. We experienced a case of omental pregnancy in the first times and reported it with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Omental pregnancy
