Abstract

A 24-year-old primigravida presented with subacute ectopic pregnancy and had salpingectomy for a ruptured tubal pregnancy involving the ampullary portion of the left fallopian tube. Post-operative follow-up revealed continuing symptoms of pregnancy and increasing uterine size. A diagnosis of multiple pregnancy was confirmed by abdominal ultrasonography. The patient was managed to term and had normal delivery of twins. (Afr J Reprod Health 2002; 6[3]: 117-119)

Résumé

Grossesse hétérope aux jumeaux vivants. Une primigeste âgée de 24 ans a présenté une grossesse ectopique sous-aigu et elle a eu une salpingectiomie pour une rupture de grossesse tubaire concernant la portion ampullaire de la trompe utérine gauche. Les suites opératoires ont révélé des symptômes ininterrompus de la grossesse et l'accroissement de l'utérine. L'ultrasonographie abdominale a confirmé le diagnostic d'une grossesse multiple. La patiente a suivi du traitement jusqu'à terme et elle a eu un accouchement normal des jumeaux. (Rev Afr Santé Reprod 2002; 6[3]: 117-119)
