A bilateral fallopian tube pregnancy: a case report

Bilateral ectopic pregnancy is the most unusual twin gestation considering that less than 250 cases have been reported in the literature. Our case fulfills the diagnostic criterion determined by Norris9 which requires demonstration of chorionic villi in each fallopian tube. We report the case of a 36-year-old multiparous woman who had an hemorrhagic acute abdomen. A laparotomy performed under general anesthesia revealed hemoperitoneum of 1.8 liters and both swelled tubes with laceration of their walls, besides two embryos with 2,7 and 3,0 cm in length free in the intra-abdominal blood. A literature review on bilateral ectopic pregnancy is presented.
