Abstract
Abdominal pregnancy is very rare and potentially life-threatening variation of ectopic pregnancy. Early diagnosis is very difficult. In the last several decades prenatal care has improved and noninvasive procedures such as ultrasound scanning and fetal cardiotocography have led to us a better assessment of fetal and maternal disorders. In the last 30 years an increase of diagnosed ectopic pregnancies has been noted and attributed to the greater frequency of pelvic inflammatory disease. Although the incidence of ectopic pregnancy is rising, the incidence of abdominal pregnancy, which is primarily a sequel of a missed ruptured ectopic pregnancy, remains low. We presented a case of secondary abdominal pregnancy in 14 wks with its review of literature.
Key Words: Secondary abdominal pregnancy, Ultrasound scanning
