Spontaneous Ipsilateral Ectopic Pregnancy in the Tubal Stump of Previous Partial Salpingectomy
We present an unusual case of recurrent ectopic pregnancy in the tubal stump of a previous partial salpingectomy. The patient presented with the classic triad of amenorrhoea, per vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain paired with a void uterus on ultrasonography. Her history was notable for a previous ectopic pregnancy resulting in a laparotomy and salpingectomy-oophrectomy. A positive B-hCG and echogeneic areas in the right adnexa led to a diagnosis of recurrent ectopic pregnancy. On laparotomy, an ectopic pregnancy was found in the right tubal stump.
