Abstract

We report a combined intra-uterine and unruptured tubal pregnancy following ovulation induction by clomiphene citrate (CC) and timed intercourse. The diagnosis of heterotopic pregnancy (HP) is the major problem until occurrence of tubal rupture. Because HP is a life-threatening condition, the diagnosis should be made as soon as possible. In a spontaneous conception, HP is a rare event. The risk of HP significantly increases after ovulation induction. Clomiphene itself could be associated with a high HP rate. We present a case with normally developing intra-uterine singleton pregnancy succesfully managed by salpingectomy of synchronous tubal pregnancy following ovulation induction by CC and a review of the literature.
