Abstract:Haemorrhagic interstitial pregnancies are commonly treated by cornual resection. This invasive procedure may increase the risk of uterine rupture in subsequent pregnancies. We report here a case of a haemorrhagic interstitial pregnancy, associated with a viable intrauterine pregnancy in a salpingectomized woman, which was treated successfully by curettage of the uterine cornu.
