A Case of Ectopic Pregnancy—An Unusual Diagnostic Challenge and Lesson Learnt  [PDF]
Awatuf Elshirif, Seema Sadiq
Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2015.54027
Abstract:

Ectopic pregnancy has been increasing in frequency over the past 2 decades. The sudden rupture of ectopic pregnancy can lead to haemorrhagic shock and death if not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. The first step in the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy is demonstration of pregnancy by means of a rapidly performed and sensitive qualitative urine test for the beta-subunit of human chorionic gonadotropin (beta-hCG). This case report demonstrates the importance of further consideration of the diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy in the setting of an unusual presentation like per rectal bleed and amenorrhea for three years in the presence of Mirena.

Pre-Operative Diagnostic Dilemma-Ovarian Ectopic Pregnancy  [PDF]
Awatuf Elshirif, Jaya Tyagi-Bhatia
Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2015.53020
Abstract:

Primary ovarian pregnancy is one of the rarest varieties of ectopic pregnancies. Patients frequently present with abdominal pain and menstrual irregularities. Preoperative diagnosis is challenging but transvaginal sonography has often been helpful. A diagnostic delay may lead to rupture, secondary implantation or operative difficulties. Therefore, awareness of this rare condition is important in reducing the associated risks. Here, we report a case report of ovarian pregnancy presented. A 29-year-old woman, nulliparous, was admitted to the hospital forsuspected ectopic pregnancy. A transvaginal sonography failed to hint at ovarian ectopic. She was successfully managed by surgery and histological studies confirmed an ovarian pregnancy.
