Successful conservative management in cervical Ectopic Pregnancy.
Ann King Edward Med Uni Jan ;10(3):307-8.
Incidence of cervical ectopic pregnancy is 6% of all the ectopic pregnancies. And this percentage is rising since last decade with increased incidence of ectopic pregnancies in general. Assisted reproduction, tubal pathology due to pelvic inflammatory disease or/and adhesions due to surgery are leading causes for increased incidence of ectopic pregnancy. Modern diagnostic techniques and regular follow up in assisted reproduction cases, pick up ectopic pregnancy at an earlier gestation. Previously hysterectomy was the only resort in majority if not all the cases of cervical ectopic pregnancies But now in selective cases like saving fertility in a patient a promising management has emerged It is however emphasized that appropriate treatment option - medical or surgical should be considered according to individual case. This case of ectopic cervical pregnancy at 6 weeks of gestation is managed successfully by conservative management.
