A case of ectopic pregnancy following vaginal hysterectomy is reported. A review of the literature reveals 22 similar cases, with 12 presenting as early postoperative complications and 10 as late postoperative complications. The pathophysiology is discussed. Although it is a remote possibility, there must be an awareness that ectopic pregnancy can occur in women with acute abdominal pain following hysterectomy.
