fertility. In this case report, we present a case which was previously misdiagnosed as a case of missed abortion at 8 weeks of
gestation by transabdominal ultrasound and patient underwent medical abortion with mefipristione and misoprostolandafter
1 month presented with pain abdomen and was confirmed as extrauterine pregnancy by transabdominal ultrasound followed
