Abstract:

Background and Aim: Cervical pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy. Treatment approach depends on hemodynamic status; so, it could be medical therapy or more aggressive treatment like emergent hysterectomy.

Case report: We present an interesting case of cervical ectopic pregnancy with high level of βhCG which was successfully treated with multidose methotrexate.

Conclusion: In cases of early diagnosis of cervical pregnancy in patients with stable hemodynamic status, medical therapy could successfully treat cervical ectopic pregnancy even with high level of βhCG.

Keywords: Cervical ectopic pregnancy, methotrexate, treatment.
