An ectopic pregnancy is the implantation of a fertilized ovum in a location other than the main cavity of the uterus. Ectopic pregnancies are reported in approximately 1%-2% of pregnancies, and while 95% of ectopic pregnancies are in fallopian tubes, only 3% are in ovarian, cervical, or abdominal sites. We present a case of a 38-year-old female with acute onset of severe lower abdominal pain, sepsis, chills, and diarrhea who was evaluated with a CT of the abdomen and pelvis with IV contrast only. The imaging revealed a likely second trimester age fetal skeleton with a partially collapsed calvarium within the peritoneal cavity and an abnormal complex cystic lesion in the right adnexal area. In this case, the patient successfully underwent exploratory laparotomy with removal of both the abdominal ectopic pregnancy and the tubo-ovarian mass.
