CONTEXT: Transperitoneal migration is a mechanism for oocyte retrieval that is generally demonstrated in certain cases of ectopic pregnancy. However, the association between these two conditions is debatable. The rare occasions on which intrauterine pregnancy following transperitoneal migration can be documented are an opportunity for studying this topic.
CASE REPORT: We report the case of a female with a history of salpingectomy due to an ectopic pregnancy at 31 years of age. Two subsequent pregnancies were intrauterine. In both of them, ultrasound revealed that the corpus luteum was located in the ovary ipsilateral to the salpingectomy.
CONCLUSION: To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of two intrauterine pregnancies following transperitoneal migration, carried to term, and resulting in the delivery of two healthy children. The clinical and physiological implications are discussed.
