Efficacy of First Trimester Ultrasound in the Early Diagnosis of Abdominal Pregnancy

Journal Title: People's Journal of Scientific Research. - Year 2013, Vol 6, Issue 2


Abdominal pregnancy is a rare type of ectopic pregnancy that implants in the peritoneal cavity, other than the fallopian tube & ovary. It is very difficult to diagnose both clinically & radiologically in early gestational period. Cases described in the literature were diagnosed in late gestational period. The present case was of a young female who presented with intermittent, lower abdominal pain, abnormal foetal movements with a history of abnormal foetal position on clinical examination. On antenatal sonography, a live foetus of 18-19 weeks was seen outside the uterus in peritoneal cavity.
