Interstitial pregnancy near term with uterine torsion

MS Waghmare


The objective of this case report is to describe a rare case of interstitial pregnancy continued till third trimester undergone uterine torsion. A 34 years primigravida with 31 weeks gestation was referred to our hospital with pain in abdomen and uterine tenderness. The presumptive diagnosis was a concealed placental abruption. Patient was taken for emergency caesarean section in view of failure of induction. During caesarean section diagnosis of uterine torsion and interstitial pregnancy was established. Post operative patient recovered well and discharged on seventh postoperative day. So, if interstitial pregnancy is not diagnosed at an early gestation age, it may continue till term which may lead to a rare complication of uterine torsion.
