Cervical pregnancy is the implantation of pregnancy in the endocervical canal; it is an infrequent form of ectopic gestation which accounts for 0.15% of all ectopic pregnancies. Diagnosis and treatment has changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Early detection by endovaginal ultrasound is desirable in order to plan management early and avoid serious and often life-threatening complications. A 24-year-old lady presented with 6 weeks of amenorrhoea with vaginal bleeding. She was diagnosed to have cervical ectopic pregnancy on ultrasound and was successfully treated with single-dose methotrexate.
