A heterotopic (combined) pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy accompanied by coexisting uterine pregnancy, is a rare phenomenon in general population. Recently, its incidence has increased significantly due to increased use of assisted reproductive technologies. But diagnosis of heterotopic pregnancy is often delayed or missed because heterotopic pregnancy is still rare and difficult to diagnose. We have a patient who had simultaneous intrauterine pregnancy and left tubal pregnancy after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer. We performed left salpingectomy and she delivered 3.13 kg healthy female baby 32 weeks later. So we report this case with a brief review of the literatures.
Key Words: Heterotopic (combined) pregnancy, In vitro fertilization and embryo transfer
