Cornual pregnancy is an infrequent pathological condition with severe prognosis if not adequately recognized. Ipsilateral salpingectomy represents a unique risk factor for this clinical entity. This article reports a laparoscopically treated spontaneous cornual pregnancy after homolateral salpingectomy for an earlier tubal pregnancy in a condition of hemodynamic instability as a result of cornual rupture.

Abstract

Cornual pregnancy is an infrequent pathological condition with severe prognosis if not adequately recognized. Ipsilateral salpingectomy represents a unique risk factor for this clinical entity. This article reports a laparoscopically treated spontaneous cornual pregnancy after homolateral salpingectomy for an earlier tubal pregnancy in a condition of hemodynamic instability as a result of cornual rupture. We include a review of the literature, underlining the feasibility of a laparoscopic approach and new treatment options combining medical and surgical tools with specific attention to their impact on future fertility and on risk of uterine rupture in a future pregnancy.
