Case Report


Obstetrics and Gynaecology (East Africa)


Heterotopic pregnancy is rare. We report a 27-year-old lady with polycystic ovarian disease. She presented at our health facility with acute abdomen. Her evaluation revealed heterotopic pregnancy. High index of suspicion for heterotopic pregnancy in any woman with early pregnancy presenting with acute abdomen is crucial. Therefore, correct and early diagnosis allows appropriate management while it preserves the intrauterine pregnancy as in the index case.
