Abstract

A case of heterotopic pregnancy after spontaneous conception with abortion of the intrauterine pregnancy and subsequent rupture of the ectopic pregnancy is presented. A 34-year-old woman at five weeks of gestation presented with a ruptured ectopic pregnancy after spontaneous abortion of an intrauterine pregnancy with mIU/ml βhCG as low as 125 mIU/mL. Close monitoring of βhCG and careful ultrasound examination together with patient consultation are extremely important in the management of heterotopic pregnancy, especially in cases of diagnostic uncertainness.
