Introduction: A 30–year-old gravida 2 para 1 woman was referred to us for further evaluation of pelvic mass from another center. She gave a history of cesarean delivery, multiple pelvic infections, and suspected pelvic mass. Patient was taken to the operating room after initial evaluation and imaging. Cervical diverticulum was identified and treatment carried out laparoscopically. The patient experienced an uneventful recovery and was completely free of the symptoms for 6 months.

Conclusion: Cervical diverticulum should be considered as a differential diagnosis and laparoscopic surgery should be considered as a treatment of choice for Mu ̈llerian anomalies.

Key Words: Cervical Diverticulum; Laparoscopy; Pelvic Mass; Pelvic Infection.
