BACKGROUND: While ectopic pregnancies account for 1-2% of all pregnancies, abdominal pregnancy is extremely rare, accounting for approximately 1% of ectopic pregnancies. Extrauterine abdominal pregnancy is defined as the implantation and development of an embryo in the peritoneal cavity. The present report is the first of an incidental case of abdominal pregnancy within four full-term foetus simultaneously with 2 weeks of physiological gestation in a healthy doe rabbit. CASE PRESENTATION: The doe was born on November 3, 2014 and the first partum took place on May 18, 2015...

Retroperitoneal ectopic pregnancy is extremely rare. We present a case of a retroperitoneal ectopic pregnancy with a gestational sac located to the left of the abdominal aorta and of the left renal vessels at 9 weeks of gestation. Careful transabdominal sonographic examination is suggested when an ectopic pregnancy is suspected and the examination of the pelvis is negative.

BACKGROUND: Pregnancy luteoma is a rare non neoplastic condition of the ovary. It is usually asymptomatic and found incidentally during imaging in pregnancy or during cesarean section. Pregnancy luteoma can also occur after ectopic pregnancy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 30 year old female presented to G.B. Pant Hospital, Andaman and Nicobar Islands institute of Medical Sciences, Port Blair in October 2015 with abdominal pain. After initial investigations, exploratory laporotomy was done for ruptured ectopic pregnancy...

Ectopic pregnancy is the implantation of a fertilized egg outside the uterine endometrial cavity. For women presenting to the emergency department with abdominal pain and/or vaginal bleeding, ectopic pregnancy is an important diagnostic consideration. The diagnosis is made based on laboratory values and ultrasound imaging findings. The ultrasound appearance of both normal early pregnancy and ectopic pregnancy are variable and often subtle, presenting diagnostic challenges for radiologists. This pictorial essay describes and illustrates the sonographic findings of ectopic pregnancy and reviews the differential diagnoses that can mimic ectopic pregnancy on ultrasound...

BACKGROUND: Retroperitoneal ectopic pregnancy (REP) is an extremely rare type of ectopic pregnancy, with a total of less than 20 cases reported in the English literature. However, failure to recognize REP may result in severe consequences. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of 32-year-old woman with REP. She had amenorrhea, left lower abdominal pain, but no vaginal bleeding. Her urine human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) test was positive and blood HCG level was 1880 m-international units per milliliter (mIU/mL)...

BACKGROUND: Choriocarcinoma associated with cornual pregnancy is extremely rare. To our knowledge, only three other cases have been reported in the literature. CASE: A 38-year-old woman was found to have a left cornual ectopic pregnancy on ultrasound after presenting with abdominal pain, irregular vaginal bleeding, and a positive pregnancy test. Laparoscopy confirmed the diagnosis and she underwent total abdominal hysterectomy. Three weeks later, she presented with vaginal bleeding...

Rudimentary horns of the uterus develop as a result of a partial non-development of one Müllerian duct, a type of congenital uterine anomaly. Pregnancy in a rudimentary horn is uncommon and the outcome tends to be poor, with the majority of cases resulting in rupture between 10 and 15 gestational weeks, with significant risk of morbidity and mortality. Regardless of the availability of imagiological procedures and the advances being made in this field, the diagnosis of this type of ectopic pregnancy often only occurs during laparotomy or laparoscopy subsequent to abdominal pain and collapse...

Second trimester abdominal ectopic pregnancies are rare and life threatening. Early diagnosis and treatment are paramount in reducing maternal morbidity and mortality. We describe an unusually late diagnosis of abdominal pregnancy despite multiple ultrasounds beginning in early pregnancy. A 28-year-old G2P1001 sought pregnancy termination at 22 weeks' gestation after fetal anomalies were noted on an 18-week ultrasound during evaluation for elevated maternal serum alfa-fetoprotein. Due to abortion restrictions in her home state, she travelled over 500 miles for abortion care...

Placental site trophoblastic tumor (PSTT) is the least common and the most ambiguous gestational trophoblastic tumor. Presentation of PSTT may occur in the course of gestation or from 1 week to 14 years after a normal or an abnormal pregnancy (mole, ectopic pregnancy, abortion). The indicators of aggressive behavior for this tumor are not well established. Due to the rarity of this disease that usually affects women of childbearing potential, we aimed to review the current literature, to identify risk factors and the best conservative therapeutic choices among the cases described...

A 26-year-old woman presented with lower abdominal pain for days. Human chorionic gonadotropin measured 2096 mIU/mL. Transvaginal ultrasound revealed no intrauterine pregnancy, but a heterogeneous 2.5cm x 2.1cm mass was adjacent to the right ovary, suggesting ectopic pregnancy. After medical therapy methotrexate 50mg/m(2) intramuscularly failed, laparoscopy found an omental mass with right tubal fimbriae attached. The left Fallopian tube and both ovaries appeared normal. Histopathology diagnosed omental pregnancy...

Uterine serosal pregnancy is an extremely rare form of ectopic pregnancy. This is a report of a 35-year-old primigravida woman who was diagnosed with uterine serosal pregnancy via laparoscopic intervention. A 35-year-old woman (gravida 1, para 0) was referred from a local clinic for a ruptured left tubal pregnancy at amenorrhea 5+0 weeks with elevated serum beta human chorionic gonadotropin (16,618 mIU/mL). A pregnancy on the left posterior wall of the uterine serosa was diagnosed during the operation and successfully treated with laparoscopic surgery as a conservative management strategy to enable fertility preservation...

Splenic ectopic pregnancy refers to the implantation of the oosperm in the spleen. If not diagnosed early, the results of this phenomenon would almost certainly be splenic rupture, which is equivalent to the spontaneous rupture of the spleen. If the patient has no history of trauma, it is difficult to diagnose this condition early and an explicit diagnosis is often obtained by exploratory laparotomy. We report the case of a 27-year-old woman who was admitted to the hospital due to abdominal pain and hemorrhagic shock...

Secondary abdominal ectopic pregnancy is rare in clinical practice, but may lead to an increased maternal mortality. We present the case of a patient with an abdominal pregnancy secondary to a uterine perforation caused by a voluntary attempt to interrupt pregnancy that presented with nine weeks of abdominal pain and minimal vaginal bleeding which was mistakenly diagnosed as acute pelvic inflammatory disease, urinary tract infection, and post-abortion products of conception. Finally, the abdominal ultrasound test found an abdominal ectopic pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal pregnancy may account for up to 1.4% of all ectopic pregnancies. The incidence of abdominal pregnancy differs in various literatures and ranges between 1:10,000 pregnancies to 1:30, 000 pregnancies. The clinical symptoms of an uncomplicated abdominal pregnancy are unspecific. There are reports of maternal and fetal survival from advanced abdominal pregnancies. CASE PRESENTATION: Our case was a 26 years old gravida 4, para 3 (2 alive, one early neonatal death) woman...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy that is frequently left undiagnosed by inexperienced obstetricians and radiologists. It is associated with higher risk of maternal hemorrhage at any gestation and more at advanced gestation. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a 22-year-old sub-Saharan African woman, gravida 3 para 0, who was diagnosed with advanced abdominal pregnancy of 25 weeks' gestation by a transvaginal ultrasound after the failure of two medical terminations of pregnancy in the first and second trimesters and a series of repeated obstetric ultrasounds showing intrauterine pregnancy...

REVIEW
A V Dolinko, R A Vrees, G N Frishman
Ectopic pregnancies account for 1.5-2% of all pregnancy in the United States. Of these, approximately 10 percent implant in non-tubal locations, including the abdominal cavity, cervix, ovary, interstitial portion of the fallopian tube, broad ligament, the uterine cornua, or within a cesarean section scar. Because these pregnancies tend to present later than typical tubal pregnancies, they have been associated with greater maternal morbidity and mortality. Advances in ultrasound technology have allowed for earlier diagnosis of non-tubal ectopic pregnancies, which in turn has led to the development of novel minimally invasive techniques to manage them...

BACKGROUND: Choriocarcinoma of the ovary is rare. This tumor can arise from gestational tissue or pure germ cells of the ovary, the former results in gestational choriocarcinoma. The clinical characteristics and histology of both tumor types are identical, differentiation of these tumors is necessary for effective treatment. One strategy for the differentiation of these tumors types is to identify the presence of paternal DNA by DNA polymorphic analysis. CASE PRESENTATION: In the present case, a 27-year-old patient with a history of amenorrhea, lower abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding received a laparoscopic dissection of cystic mass of the right ovary according to an initial diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy...
