Eclampsia In Advanced Abdominal Pregnancy

B A Ekele, A N Adamu, H Ladan, H Abitare


The occurrence of eclampsia in an extra uterine pregnancy is a very rare entity. We report a case of a patient with eclampsia and advanced extra-uterine pregnancy. The fits were controlled with diazepam and the patient had laparotomy for the evacuation of the fetus from the abdominal cavity. She had an uneventful post operative recovery and was discharged home in good health after 10 days.

Keywords: Eclampsia, extra-uterine pregnancy
