Introduction: Cornual pregnancy on the same side as a previous salpingectomy is a very rare pathologic condition in cases of spontaneous pregnancy.
Case Description: A 31-year-old woman (gravida 2, para 0) was admitted with abdominal pain and vaginal hemorrhage. She had a history of laparoscopic left salpingectomy for tubal pregnancy 6 years ago at another hospital. Two-port laparoscopy with a multichannel port was performed and revealed a left cornual pregnancy with hemoperitoneum. Five months later, she visited our emergency department because of abdominal pain. We performed 2-port laparoscopy, using a multichannel port for a left cornual pregnancy with hemoperitoneum.
Discussion: Two-port laparoscopy with a multichannel port for recurrent cornual pregnancy was relative safe and easy, with the advantages of reduced surgical morbidity, less bleeding, and shorter operative time.
Key Words: Cornual pregnancy, Laparoscopy, Recurrence, Salpingectomy, Salpinx.
