Cornu of the uterus is one of the uncommon sites of ectopic pregnancy. Molar cornual ectopic pregnancy is extremely rare and only few cases are reported in the literature. A 25-year-old gravida 3, para 1, abortion 1 lady reported with complaints of amenorrhea of 9 weeks and pain in the lower abdomen for 1 day. Sonography revealed an anechoic structure of 20 mm at the left adnexa with evidence of hemoperitoneum. The patient was managed with laparoscopic cornuostomy. Histopathologic analysis demonstrated placental tissue with features consistent with a complete molar pregnancy. It is emphasized that histopathological examination of the retrieved tissues should be considered after each case of surgical management of ectopic pregnancy to rule out molar pregnancy.
