A case of simultaneous bilateral tubal pregnancy following in-vitro fertilization and embryo transfer is presented. On the 22 days after ET, the patient complained of low abdominal pain and vaginal spotting for one day and was suspected of left tubal pregnancy by transvaginal ultrasonography. However, laparoscopy revealed the bilateral tubal pregnancy and laparoscopic bilateral salpingectomy was performed. This unusual type of ectopic pregnancy must be kept in mind when evaluating a patient suspected of a possible early abnormal gestation after assisted reproductive technologies. It is critical to perform a close inspection of the abdomen, pelvis, and contralateral tube during surgery.
Key Words: Bilateral tubal pregnancy, Ectopic pregnancy, In vitro fertilization and embryo transfer
