Abstract
Heterotopic pregnancy, simultaneous intrauterine and extrauterine pregnancy, is an extremely rare case. The incidence of heterotopic pregnancy was about 1 to 30,000 pregnancy, but it has been increased. Ectopic pregnancy is associated with significant mortality if not promptly diagnosed. Careful pelvic examination combined serial beta-hCG determinations and transvaginal sonography to evaluation the adnexal region are necessary prerequisites for early diagnosis. We report a case of discovery of heterotopic pregnancy after elective abortion with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Heterotopic pregnancy
