Intramural pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy and little is known about its etiology, prevalence and natural history. There is no consensus regarding the ultrasound criteria to diagnose intramural pregnancy and the management strategies vary depending on the severity of clinical presentation, exact location of pregnancy, viability and gestational age. We present four cases of intramural pregnancies diagnosed in a single institution which illustrate variability in their clinical presentations and difficulties in reaching the correct diagnosis. We also propose a set of ultrasound criteria to facilitate differential diagnosis between intramural and other types of uterine ectopic pregnancies.
