Abstract

The aim of the present case series is to describe clinical presentation and ultrasonographic appearances observed in this rare form of ectopic pregnancy.
We present 4 cases of interstitial ectopic pregnancy which were treated surgically at our institute over one year period.
Interstitial pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy which carries a higher risk of morbidity and mortality due to catastrophic hemorrhage. Early diagnosis is mandatory for management of this potentially fatal condition and a high index of suspicion is essential for early diagnosis.
