Abstract

The lack of standard treatment guidelines for the management of a cervical heterotopic gestation poses a challenging clinical situation, particularly after IVF. Here we describe a case of cervical heterotopic gestation treated by ultrasound-guided aspiration, curettage of embryonic tissue remains and cervical pessary placement for prevention of preterm labor. The cervical pregnancy was successfully interrupted and the intrauterine gestation progressed to term with the birth of a healthy baby girl.
