Abstract

Ectopic pregnancy, defined as the placement of an embryonic sac somewhere other than the uterine wall, is the most common life-threatening emergency seen during early pregnancy. Interstitial ectopic pregnancy is defined as the placement of an ectopic pregnancy to the uterine part of the fallopian tubes and makes up about 2-4% of all ectopic pregnancies. Compared to other tubal pregnancies, they rupture later during pregnancy and gross hemorrhage is seen as a result of this rupture. Maternal mortality risk is 2 to 5 times more in interstitial ruptured pregnancy in comparison with other tubal pregnancies. Early diagnosis and treatment of interstitial ectopic pregnancy is therefore very crucial, as they carry a very high risk of morbidity associated with the rupture. In this case report, we present a case presenting with severe abdominal pain and amenorrhea for 3 months to our clinic. After examination, the patient was diagnosed with a cornual ectopic pregnancy which was late for a case like this. We would like to discuss this case with a literature review on this subject
