Ultrasonic examination indications for early pregnancy include the existence of uterine pregnancy, the number of gestation sac, and the existence of ectopic gestation.
Currently, the incidence of ectopic gestation tends to be higher year by year, 4 and the disease is not specific in the early stage.

is a common cause of morbidity and occasionally of mortality in women of reproductive age.
INTRODUCTION: Zygote implanted outside endometrial cavity is called ectopic gestation
1] In this case she underwent salpingectomy with opposite side tubectomy for previous ectopic gestation
Various factors compared with respect to age, parity, risk factors for occurrence of ectopic like pelvic inflammatory disease/previous abortions/intrauterine contraceptive devices/previous ectopic, site of ectopic gestation
, side, type (ruptured/tubal abortion), history of blood transfusion, any maternal morbidities/mortalities will be assessed and compared.
Cornual gestation is one of the most hazardous type of ectopic gestation
which may often require hysterectomy.
