Abstract
Ectopic pregnancy and appendicitis in pregnancy are two most common causes of acute abdomen in young women and differenciation of these diseases is very difficult. Heterotopic pregnancy is a rare event, occuring less than 1:30,000 pregnancies in natural conception cycles. However, with assisted reproduction techniques, this incidence has increased. We experienced a case of spontaneous heterotopic pregnancy after missed abortion and acute appendicitis treated by laparoscopy. So we report this case with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Heterotopic pregnancy, Appendicitis, Laparoscopy
