Introduction: Heterotopic pregnancy or combination of intra and extra- uterine pregnancy is very rare, but its incidence increased sharply in recent years due to the development of medically assisted reproductive technology. This condition carries a significant maternal morbidity and mortality due to the risk of rupture of ectopic pregnancy. This study was a case report of heterotopic pregnancy.
Patient Information A 25 year old pregnant woman with abdominal pain and nausea and vomiting was admitted in 12 March 2018 in Firoozgar hospital that ultrasound examination suggested heterotopic pregnancy and laparotomy and left salpingectomy was performed, and intrauterine pregnancy continued. Conclusion A high index of suspicion can help in timely diagnosis and appropriate intervention and decrease the risk of complications and maternal mortality.
