Abstract

A case of cervical pregnancy after curettage for presumptive intrauterine blighted ovum is presented. The woman was successfully treated by vacuum evacuation and curettage. A 29-year-old woman, gravida 2, nulliparous, was admitted to our department at ten weeks and two days of gestation after a diagnosis of cervical pregnancy. She had been treated by curettage five days before for an initial diagnosis of intrauterine blighted ovum. Ultrasound scan examination revealed a gestational sac without foetus in the cervix four days after the first curettage. Vacuum evacuation and curettage of the cervical canal were performed and a Foley catheter was also inserted and left in place for three days. The patient was discharged in good condition on the fourth postoperative day.
