Abdominal pregnancy is a very rare form of ectopic pregnancy following IVF-ET procedure. Because the symptoms of abdominal pregnancy is not typical, it is difficult to diagnose early and the mortality rate is higher than other ectopic pregnancies. Liver, spleen, omentum and diaphragm are main implantation sites of abdominal pregnancy. We reported an unusual first case of an etopic pregnancy on uterosacral ligament following in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Abdominal pregnancy; Ectopic pregnancy; IVF-ET; Uterosacral ligament
