Background: Tubal Stump Ectopic is an infrequent event with critical obstetrical consequences. A case is illustrated from Northern Ireland in which an ectopic pregnancy was discovered in the tubal stump previously undergone salpingectomy. Case Facts: A 34-year-old woman (G2 E1) with a tubal stump ectopic of a previous cornual excision two years prior, presented to EPAU complaining of mild abdominal pain and 6 weeks amenorrhoea. She was clinically stable (β-hCG 1407 mIU/mL), while TVUS revealed no evidence of IUP or adnexal mass but fluid in the Pouch of Douglas. Laparoscopic salpingectomy was performed after a diagnosis of tubal stump ectopic. Inference: Women who has had a previously ectopic pregnancy are at a significantly greater probability of relapse. To correctly and quickly identify the implanted location, a TVUS should be conducted. Laparoscopic diagnostic salpingectomy should be performed through excision by diathermy to prevent the risk of EP in the tubal stump.
