Abstract

A case of combined cornual pregnancy and intrauterine twin pregnancy after in vitro fertilization (IVF) and transfer of six embryos is presented. The case was diagnosed as intrauterine triplets ultrasonographically at seven weeks of gestation. Unfortunately, the patient suffered from severe lower abdominal pain and hypovolemic shock at 10 weeks of gestation, and an emergent laparotomy was done. During the operation, a ruptured cornual pregnancy with accompanying hemoperitoneum was found. Because fetal heart beats were not detected by intraoperative ultrasonography in the other two intrauterine fetuses, evacuation of the gestational contents through the uterine defect was done, and the rupture site was repaired. The incidence, mechanism and management of heterotopic pregnancies after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer are discussed.
