Cornual heterotopic pregnancy is an extremely rare, life-threatening complication during pregnancy. Here, we report a 33-year-old woman who suffered cornual heterotopic pregnancy afterin vitro fertilization embryo transfer. To prevent rupture during heterotopic pregnancy, she received laparoscopic surgery to remove the ectopic gestational sac at 7+2weeks of gestation. Ultimately, she delivered a healthy boy at 38+3 weeks of gestation. Here, we also review the clinical presentations, risk factors, treatment options and outcomes of cornual heterotopic pregnancy.

Key words: cornual heterotopic pregnancy, transvaginal ultrasonography, laparoscopy, reproduction technique
