A rare case of secondary abdominal pregnancy – case report and literature review

OM Teodor, O Munteanu, MM Cîrstoiu


Rezumat: Abdominal pregnancy is a very rare form of ectopic pregnancy and is associated with an increased mortality rate. The main life-threating complication is intraperitoneal bleeding from placental site. The gestational age is important for the prediction of complications’ severity. While most cases are secondary to a tubal rupture and the subsequently implantation in the peritoneal cavity, a previous uterine perforation can also represent the leading cause. In the current paper, we report an extremely rare case of secondary abdominal pregnancy with a gestational age of 11 weeks in a 37-year-old patient having a history of unnoticed uterine perforation. This report raises awareness on a rare and severe obstetrical condition, discussing the case particularities, with the aim to highlight the urge for prompt diagnostic and treatment measures.
Cuvinte cheie: abdominal pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, uterine perforation, intraperitoneal bleeding.
