Intraligamentary Extrauterine Pregnancy Delivered at Term: A Case Report and Review of Literature
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractIntraligamentary pregnancy is extremely rare. Preoperative diagnosis is often difficult. We report a case of a 33 year old female who had an ectopic pregnancy in the right broad ligament. The pregnancy remained viable till term, but unfortunately resulted in a perinatal death prior delivery. Diagnosis was not made until laparotomy and a well formed still born was delivered. A high index of suspicion and prompt therapeutic intervention are necessary to prevent adverse fetal and or maternal outcome. Keywords: Intraligamentary pregnancy, Full term fetus, Nigeria.
