Abstract

MARTINEZ D., Rodolfo A.; QUINTERO, Leila; GARCIA, Carlos A.  and  FERNANDEZ DE CASTRO, Alfredo. Ectopic Cervical Pregnancy – Precise Diagnosis and Medical Management Approach. Case Report. Univ. Med. [online]. 2018, vol.59, n.1, pp.75-86. ISSN 0041-9095.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/javeriana.umed59-1.ecto.

Cervical ectopic pregnancy is an exotic condition. Its diagnosis and management pose a major challenge given its association with serious maternal outcomes. The clinical suspicion and the judicious application of the diagnostic criteria allow for conservative therapy modalities. In this article, a case of cervical ectopic pregnancy is reported to diagnostic ultrasound imaging and nuclear magnetic resonance in which treatment with Methotrexate was administered. Clinical follow-up of the laboratory test and ultrasound showed complete resolution of the condition. Aspects related to the diagnosis and treatment are reviewed.

Keywords : pregnancy ectopic; ultrasonography; magnetic resonance spectroscopy; Methotrexate.
