Abstract

Objective: To report on the case of a woman who presented with lower abdominal pain and vaginal bleeding, and who was diagnosed with early interstitial pregnancy. Design: Case report. Setting: Medical center and teaching hospital. Patient: A 32-year-old woman with a previous history of ectopic pregnancy. Intervention(s): Imaging study with ultrasonography and laparoscopy. Main Outcome Measure(s): Complete resolution of the ectopic pregnancy at the interstitial site of the amputated fallopian tube, and resumption of menstruation. Result(s): Other causes of internal bleeding were ruled out. Menstruation resumed 30 days after the procedure. Conclusion: An early interstitial pregnancy may be successfully managed with laparoscopic electrodessication.
