Abstract Share this page

A combination of an extra-uterine and an intra-uterine pregnancy is defined as heterotopic pregnancy. An infertile patient, pregnant at her fourth in-vitro fertilization/embryo transfer attempt, was diagnosed at 21 weeks' gestation as having simultaneous abdominal and intra-uterine pregnancy. Expectant management under strict hospitalization was proposed and accepted by the couple, fetal assessment was by serial ultrasound evaluation of growth and amniotic fluid volume and by non-stress tests. Planned operative delivery was accomplished at 34 weeks' gestation. Both the mother and infants are alive and well.
