T.A Ottun, Y.A Oshodi, A.O Tayo, A.O Babatunde


Ectopic pregnancy is a major health risk for women of reproductive age group and is a major cause of death in the first trimester. While most cases of tubal pregnancy will present in the first trimester, advanced tubal pregnancy is rare and may be associated with diagnostic difficulty. We present the case of a 30 year-old primigravida who had total salpingectomy for unruptured mid-trimester tubal pregnancy with favorable outcome at 20 weeks gestation.
