BACKGROUND: Ectopic pregnancy after hysterectomy is an unusual diagnosis that may lead to significant morbidity, especially when diagnosis is not timely.
CASE: A 41-year-old woman presenting with abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding 5 years after a vaginal hysterectomy was found to have a tubal ectopic pregnancy, which required emergent surgical intervention.
CONCLUSION: Ectopic pregnancy after hysterectomy represents a challenging diagnosis because it is counter-intuitive and very uncommon. The diagnosis of posthys-terectomy ectopic pregnancy, though exceptionally rare, should be considered for women presenting with abdominal pain after hysterectomy.
