A 36-year-old amenorrhoeic patient presented with vague abdominal discomfort, and haemodynamic instability, a large haemoperitoneum was identified on transvaginal ultrasound. Ruptured tubal ectopic pregnancy was suspected. At laparotomy ruptured primary tubal ectopic pregnancy was identified, with 12-14 week secondary abdominal pregnancy implanted onto the omentum, confirmed by histopathology. Salpingo-oophrectomy with peritoneal washout was performed, and three units blood transfusion was required. The patient had an uneventful recovery to health.
