Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVE: To report a case of a very rare ectopic cervical intramural pregnancy.
DESIGN: Case report.
SETTING: Prefectural hospital.
PATIENT(S): A 22-year-old woman, gravida 1, para 0, was referred to our hospital with the suspicion of a cervical ectopic pregnancy (EP). Pelvic examination revealed an enlarged uterine cervix with no genital bleeding. We found a clear gestational sac (GS) and fetal heart beat in the anterior muscular layer of the uterine cervix by ultrasonography, and confirmed these findings by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
INTERVENTION(S): We injected methotrexate (MTX) into the GS cavity and around the GS. One week later, the GS was removed surgically without massive bleeding.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): On the 11th postoperative day, she recovered and was discharged from our hospital. Her menstruation restarted on the 35th postoperative day.
RESULT(S): We have shown a case of a very rare ectopic cervical intramural pregnancy with successful treatment.
CONCLUSION(S): We have explained a case and successful treatment of a very rare ectopic cervical intramural pregnancy with clear GS and fetal heart beat. Our strategy was injecting MTX into the GS cavity and around the GS, then performing an operation to remove the GS.
