We report on a rare case of a woman presenting with an early intra-uterine pregnancy, lower abdominal pain and a right-sided pelvic mass. She developed an acute abdomen and an emergency laparotomy was performed. Histology revealed an ectopic invasive molar pregnancy. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a normal intra-uterine pregnancy with an ectopic invasive molar pregnancy.
