A 32‐year‐old gravid 1, parity 0 woman was referred to our hospital with suspicion of ectopic pregnancy 31 days after her previous menstrual period. She had a 5‐month history of secondary infertility reported increasing lower abdominal pain. Her serum human chronic gonadotropin level was 8160 mIU/mL. Her medical history was significant for a myomectomy and an enucleation of left ovarian cyst. On suspicion of an ectopic pregnancy, laparoscopic exploration was performed. Dense pelvic adhesion was seen. After dissection of the adhesion, we could not find the blastocyst in her pelvis. Early pregnancy tissue implanted in the omentum was identified and was excised laparoscopically. The postoperative course was uneventful. When no ectopia is found in the fallopian tubes during laparoscopy or laparotomy for ectopic pregnancy, all peritoneal surfaces and the omentum must be carefully inspected during surgery.
