    OBJECTIVE: To report a case of ruptured right heterotopic interstitial pregnancy diagnosed and managed laparoscopically by cornual resection.

    DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: University tertiary care hospital.

    PATIENT(S): A 29-year-old female Jehovah's Witness patient with first-trimester acute right lower quadrant abdominal pain.

    INTERVENTION(S): Emergency laparoscopy was performed, and the site of bleeding was first clamped with a laparoscopic grasper. The lateral tissue was then coagulated and simultaneously transected with the bipolar-cutting probe for control of hemorrhage.

    MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): The early diagnosis of heterotopic interstitial pregnancy should enable a conservative approach, whether medical or surgical, to be undertaken when treating this rare and potentially fatal condition.

    RESULT(S): The treatment of a ruptured heterotopic interstitial pregnancy by laparoscopy was successful with cornual resection.

    CONCLUSION(S): Management of a ruptured interstitial pregnancy by laparoscopy was successful with cornual resection and minimal blood loss, and a coexiting intrauterine pregnancy continued satisfactorily.
