Intramural pregnancy is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy, wherein the fetus is implanted within the myometrium, separate from the endometrial cavity. Diagnosis is seldom made before uterine rupture or surgery, which could result in life-threatening hemorrhage. In most cases, surgical intervention and even hysterectomy are required. Here, we present a case of intramural pregnancy discovered at 20 weeks gestation, which was successfully treated by laparotomy.
Keywords: intramural pregnancy; ultrasonography; laparotomy; prerupture.
