Abstract

The majority of ectopic pregnancies are located within the fallopian tube. Nevertheless, pregnancies have been reported to implant in the cervix, ovary, interstitial tubal segment, and at various intra-abdominal sites. The diagnosis and treatment of these unusual implantation sites presents a challenge for clinical as well as radiological diagnosis and there is a tendency to overlook its possibility. In this study, we attempt to summarize the current data regarding diagnosis and optimal treatment of these unusual ectopic pregnancies from our experience with six unusual types of ectopic pregnancies from the Women Hospital, Doha, Qatar. © 2012 Egyptian Society of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine.
