Abstract

Pregnancy in the broad ligament is a rare form of ectopic abdominal pregnancy with a high risk of maternal mortality. Ultrasound examination may help in the early diagnosis but mostly the diagnosis is established during surgery. We are reporting two cases of broad ligament pregnancy one diagnosed on ultrasound and the other was diagnosed intraoperatively. Both these patients had uneventful postoperative recovery.

Key words: broad ligament; ectopic pregnancy; ultrasonography.
