A Live Term Intra-Abdominal Pregnancy in a Field Hospital: a Case ReportAbdelrahman, S; Deeter, M; Muthusami, A; Peterson, TG; Wackenier, L (Oxford University Press, 2017-03-22)Abdominal pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy with high morbidity and mortality for both the mother and the fetus. Diagnosis can be challenging, especially in a resource-limited setting. We report a case of abdominal pregnancy that presented to Médecins Sans Frontières field hospital in Agok, South Sudan, with abdominal pain. Examination revealed a term pregnancy and a live fetus in transverse lie. The diagnosis of abdominal pregnancy was made intraoperatively, with successful management and delivery of a healthy baby.
