Abstract

Cervical pregnancy is a rare form of EP often resulting in an obstetric catastrophe. We report a case of a combined viable IUP and cervical pregnancy resulting from IVF-ET treatment and which was diagnosed during the 7th week of gestation. Nonsurgical treatment consisting of selective intra-arterial catheterization and administration of MTX directly into the uterine arteries was carried out successfully. Complications were avoided, and the patient's reproductive capability was preserved.
