Uterine cervical diverticulum is a very rare malformation. Affected patients are reported to have infertility issues and problems during the perinatal period. A 32-year-old nulliparous woman visited another obstetrics and gynecology hospital because of infertility. A cyst branching out from the uterine cervix was discovered. Subsequently, she conceived via assisted reproductive technology, but the uterine cyst was left untreated. Eventually, the pregnancy was terminated due to an enlarged uterine cyst and several birth defects. She was referred to our hospital where she was diagnosed with a uterine cervical diverticulum. We excised the diverticulum via a laparoscopic approach. Afterward, she became pregnant and delivered a baby vaginally at 37 weeks. To our knowledge, this is the first report of successful delivery after laparoscopic diverticulum excision. We recommend cervical diverticulum excision before pregnancy because of the potential adverse events associated with cervical diverticulum during pregnancy.
