We safely performed laparoscopic appendectomy in a 30-year-old, 17-week pregnant woman. She visited a nearby doctor with a chief complaint of abdominal pain and was referred to our hospital with a diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Symptoms of peritoneal irritation were positive, and swelling of the appendix was confirmed by abdominal ultrasonography. We diagnosed her as having acute appendicitis and performed emergency surgery. In Japan, there are few reported cases of laparoscopic appendectomy in pregnant women. However, by devising a port arrangement that takes into account the number of weeks of pregnancy and the position of the uterine fundus, laparoscopic appendectomy can be performed safely even during pregnancy.
