Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Heterotopic pregnancy is the simultaneus development of an intrauterine pregnancy and ectopic pregnancy. It is a potentially fatal condition and rarely occurrs in natural conception cycles. A high incidence of heterotopic pregnancy is reported in pregnancies following an assisted reproduction technique (ART) with embryo transfer in utero. We report the case of heterotopic pregnancy via ART in a 42-year-old primigravida. She presented with pelvic pain and intraabdominal fluid collection. She was treated with laparoscopic surgery. At present the intrauterine pregnancy is in normal evolution.
