This is a 25-year-old patient with a history of HIV and repeated vaginal infections. She comes to the emergency room with severe pain in the lower abdomen and history of amenorrhea for 12 weeks. Possible abdominal ectopic pregnancy is diagnosed and the emergency laparotomy is decided. During the transoperative period, a left intraligamentary ectopic pregnancy was diagnosed. Salpingectomy was performed with resection of the entire broad ligament.
