OBJECTIVE: The increased use of assisted reproduction techniques has been accompanied by an increase in ectopic pregnancies with unusual location being associated with significant maternal morbidity and mortality. This article reports on seven cases of ectopic pregnancies with unusual location and an angular pregnancy. Diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are discussed and a brief review of literature is presented. STUDY DESIGN: Case series of seven cases with ectopic pregnancy in unusual location, following assisted reproductive technique or conceived spontaneously (cesarean scar pregnancy and early abdominal pregnancy in mesoappendix) and an angular pregnancy, having presented at our hospital during the last eight years. Retrospective analyses. RESULTS: Interstitial pregnancy, cornual pregnancy, cesarean scar pregnancy, early abdominal pregnancy in omentum majus, heterotopic (cervical) pregnancy, early abdominal pregnancy in mesoappendix, angular pregnancy. All patients were surgically treated. CONCLUSION: Diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy with unusual location may be difficult, and differentiation of intact intrauterine or extrauterine pregnancy with adequate consideration of the area of uterine ostium of the fallopian tube may be delicate. Moreover, varying treatment strategies and high rates of complications aggravate the situation.
