A review is presented of 96 cases of ectopic pregnacy over a 7-year period. It is noted that in recent years the incidence of this problem has increased. Inadequately diagnosed and treated pelvic inflammatory disease has been found to be the main predisposing factor (40%). The rate of extra-uterine gestation was 1:336 deliveries. In this study, previous fertility was high, and primigravidae constituted only 10.4% of the total. The effect of previous pelvic operations and pelvic infection is discussed; a statistical review of signs and symptoms is tabulated, and the management of the patient and of concomitant problems is presented.
