The authors present a case of a 31 years old patient - having no Fallopian tubes - in whom an operative laparoscopy had to be performed for recurrent ectopic pregnancies after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer. Strangely this extraordinary case of assisted reproductive treatment emphasizes that even bilateral salpingectomy does not completely rule out the possibility of an ectopic nidation in the stump of a 'resected' organ. This case calls our attention to the fact that especially in the light of potential legal actions, all potentially fatal complications - no matter how unlikely and rare they are - have to be recognized and should be included in the risk assessment when offering infertility treatment to the patients.
