Three cases of cornual pregnancies encountered within three weeks at Paropakar Maternity and Women’s Hospital had
diverse presentations. Fortunately, in all three case series, cornual resection was performed successfully. Cornual pregnancy is
difficult to diagnose preoperatively with low ultrasonographic sensitivity and is easily confused with tubal ectopic pregnancy
or a normal intrauterine pregnancy. Diagnosis before rupture is essential to prevent mortality and potential loss of fertility. The
surgical management of diagnosed cornual pregnancy consists of hemostasis, resection, repair and reconstruction.
Keywords: cornual ectopic; cornual pregnancy; cornual resection.
