Abstract

Cervical pregnancy is an extremely rare form of ectopic pregnancy. We present a case of a 30 years old patient, diagnosed with cervical pregnancy, in the 7th week of gestation. Initially pharmaceutical treatment was attempted, but due to severe vaginal bleeding the patient underwent surgical therapy. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment lead to a very good outcome minimizing mortality and morbidity.
