Abstract

Background:

Ectopic pregnancy after hysterectomy is a very uncommon event, but its frequency is increasing. Since first reported by Wendler in 1895, 71 cases of post-hysterectomy have been reported.

Case:

A woman, 2 years after an abdominal supracervical hysterectomy, presented with a ruptured fallopian tube ectopic pregnancy.

Conclusion:

Any woman, even after hysterectomy but with ovaries in situ, who presents with an acute abdomen or abdominal-pelvic pain should be screened for pregnancy.

KEYWORDS:

Ectopic pregnancy; Hysterectomy; Vaginal–peritoneal fistula
