OBJECTIVE: To determine whether ectopic pregnancy should be suspected in young women with abdominal pain even after hysterectomy. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: The patient presenting with abdominal pain in the emergency department was referred to a tertiary care center. PATIENT(S): A young woman who had had a subtotal hysterectomy 3 years prior for atonic postpartum hemorrhage during her last caesarean section presented with acute abdominal pain. INTERVENTION(S): Urgent ultrasound showed a gestational sac of 9 weeks + 3 days. Emergency laparotomy was done for suspected ectopic pregnancy. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Ultrasound, operative findings, and histopathology. RESULT(S): Tubal ectopic pregnancy was confirmed on laparotomy and histopathology. CONCLUSION(S): Early suspicion can avoid missing early and treatable ectopic gestation before life-threatening complications develop.
