Abstract

Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening complication occurring in approximately 1% of all pregnancies. It still continues to be an important cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Combination of clinical and ultraonographic findings, consecutive levels of human chorionic gonadotrophin, are important for diagnosis. Expectant management and surgical or medical treatment are the options for ectopic pregnancy. The rate of recurrence rises in patients with a history of previous ectopic pregnancy irrespective of mode of management. We present here a case series of four consecutive patients presenting with recurrent ectopic pregnancies.
