A patient who had experienced an ectopic pregnancy and subsequent salpingectomy was found to have an ectopic pregnancy, presenting as an hematosalpinx, in the remaining fallopian tube. The diagnosis was made at the time of laparoscopy, and the patient refused definitive surgery. Fourteen months later she achieved an intrauterine pregnancy, and repeat laparoscopic examination revealed an essentially normal pelvis and fallopian tube. This is evidently the first case report of a pregnancy occurring through a fallopian tube that had had a previous ectopic gestation and in which no surgical procedure was performed on the affected tube.
