The fallopian tubes are the site of the ectopic pregnancies in 99% of cases.
This undetected ectopic pregnancy implanted in the fallopian tube and grew for up to 8 weeks. After this time the fallopian tube was too small for continued growth. This caused tubal rupture and subsequent tubal haemorrhage, this resulted in a huge internal bleed and then a rapid death. This case shows the importance of taking a menstrual/sexual history when examining females of reproductive age.
When picked up early, this condition can be treated surgically.
