We report a case of a viable abdominal pregnancy with successful outpatient management until fetal lung maturation and planned delivery. Advanced abdominal pregnancy is a very rare extrauterine pregnancy, which results in serious maternal and fetal morbidity. A 28-year-old nullipara was referred from the local clinic to our tertiary center at 18 weeks' gestation. We diagnosed an extrauterine fetus on sonographic examination. The patient had weekly antenatal sonographic examinations. We performed a planned laparotomy at 34 weeks' gestation, and a female baby weighing 2,100 g was delivered. The placenta was completely removed and the uterus was preserved. Both the mother and the baby had no postoperative morbidity. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound, 2012.
