A case of a 42-year-old woman who presented 11 weeks after a vaginal hysterectomy with a 13-week abdominal pregnancy is presented. The patient had operative intervention, which was complicated by bleeding and a pulmonary embolus. A brief review of the literature relating to post-hysterectomy pregnancy follows. Physicians are urged to consider this diagnosis in women who have had hysterectomies, even if the hysterectomy was performed years earlier.
