Here we present a spontaneously-developed case involving 12th week heterotopic tubal pregnancy. In the preoperative period, the diagnosis was confirmed both by ultrasonographic examination and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The patient was treated successfully using a laparoscopic salpingectomy technique without jeopardizing the intrauterine pregnancy.
