Background: Most patients with extratubal ectopic pregnancies present with vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal pain. We report a case of an extratubal ectopic pregnancy with extra-abdominal manifestations. Case: An ectopic pregnancy implanted on the diaphragm resulted in spontaneous hemothorax due to trophoblastic invasion into the pleura. Thoracoscopic excision followed by actinomycin D chemotherapy provided successful resolution of the ectopic pregnancy. Conclusion: Abdominal pregnancies may have bizarre clinical presentations.
