Ectopic Pregnancy occurs when the developing blastocyst becomes implanted at a site other than the endometrium of the uterine cavity. The prevalence of Ectopic Pregnancy is reported in 1.5 of all pregnancies. Broad ligament pregnancy is an uncommon kind of Ectopic Pregnancy that considered as one case of abdominal pregnancy. The maternal mortality rate of abdominal pregnancy has been reported in 20 of all cases because of a massive hemorrhage from partial or total placental separation. In the management of patients with Ectopic Pregnancy, an early diagnosis has important impact on treatment outcomes and reduces the treatment costs. We present a rare case broad ligament pregnancy with treatment of a single dose of 50 mg of intramuscular Methotrexate.
