A Rare Case of Cornual Ectopic Pregnancy - A Case Report

Syed Sameera | R Pravallika Sudharani

Abstract: Cornual pregnancy is uncommon among ectopic pregnancies. A diagnosis of cornual pregnancy remains challenging, and rupture of a cornual pregnancy causes catastrophic consequence due to massive bleeding. In very rare circumstances, cornual pregnancies can result in a viable fetus. We report a case of a 26-year-old multigravida (G4P3L2D1) with one prior LSCS and two VBACs who presented to us with complaints of bleeding per vaginum, amenorrhea of 12 weeks. Ultrasound at 8 weeks revealed a single intrauterine pregnancy. After an episode of bleeding per vaginum, patient neglected antenatal care as she had assumed it had been a missed carriage. Five weeks later, patient attended our OP clinic in view of pain abdomen and bleeding per vaginum. Emergency laparotomy was done and intraoperatively it was diagnosed as cornual ectopic pregnancy. Left cornual resection with left salpingectomy done. Right fallopian tube and bilateral ovary were healthy. Postoperative period was uneventful.
