Abstract

Diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy in a sterilized female may be missed many times and it is associated with greater risk of maternal morbidity and mortality. Risk of ectopic pregnancy after failure of tubal ligation is not only limited to initial years but also seen many years after the procedure. So due consideration should be given to ectopic gestation as a part of the differential diagnosis in acute abdomen of reproductive age group female even in the presence of tubal ligation history.
