Uterine perforation is one of the rare complications of intrauterine device (IUD). This case report is about laparoscopic removal of a dislocated IUD found between the two layers of the broad ligament due to perforation during insertion. During insertion of an IUD to a 27 year old patient, uterine perforation occurred. Ultrasonographic examination revealed an IUD outside the uterus. Laparoscopy was planned for the removal of the IUD. During laparoscopic examination, a copper IUD was detected between the two layers of the broad ligament on the posterior of the left round ligament and the tip of one of the arms of the IUD was seen. The IUD was removed, and any complications were not observed after the operation. Laparoscopic management of the extrauterine IUDs should be the first choice of treatment in these cases.
