Overview

Objective:
Presentation of rare complication following the assisted reproduction at a patient after cesarean section and bilateral salpingectomy.

Design:
Case report.

Settings:
Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Regional Hospital Liberec, a. s.; Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Palacky University Hospital, Olomouc.

Observation:
Pregnant woman, 26-years old, primiparous, with history of cesarean section and bilateral salpingectomy, was referred from the assisted reproduction centre to solve suspicion of molar intrauterine pregnancy. This diagnosis was settled on the basis of ultrasound scan of uterine cavity and high level of human choriogonadotropine. Instrumental revision of uterine cavity was performed, however there was not consequently demonstrated any histological prove of the pregnancy tissue in uterine cavity and decrease of human choriogonadotropine values. The verifying ultrasound examination was made and then the suspicion of ectopic pregnancy on the right side of the uterus was expressed. Laparoscopy diagnosed ectopic pregnancy localized in the right broad ligament. It was treated by exstirpation of the pregnancy tissue.

Conclusion:
The diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy should be based on personal history, human choriogonadotropine level assessment and pelvic ultrasound examination. Although it´s important to evaluate all the components globally, ultrasound examination is in a majority of cases the most important part for setting the right diagnosis.
