Abstract

Background: An ectopic pregnancy (EP) is a type of conception in which, the fertilized egg is lodged outside the uterine cavity. Twin ectopic pregnancies are a rarity, and the reported cases of twin tubal pregnancies are a handful to date.
Case Report: We report a case of a 35 years old patient who presented to the emergency with the complaint of lower abdominal pain and intermittent vaginal discharge. She was diagnosed with twin tubal alive gestation, underwent exploratory laparotomy and right salpingectomy.
Conclusion: Ectopic pregnancy can occur even in the absence of known risk factors. Its incidence is on the rise. It is a leading cause of first-trimester maternal deaths and can be easily diagnosed with Beta HCG levels and transvaginal ultrasound.
