  • Unilateral ectopic twin gestation is a rare entity with few cases described in the literature. The estimated incidence is around 1/20,000-250,000 of all pregnancies and 1/200 ectopic pregnancies. Its management remains a challenge for professionals. Diagnosis and treatment should be performed early, with surgery being the mainstay of treatment. We present the case of a 33-year-old female patient presenting with an ectopic twin gestation after in vitro fertilization, who was surgically managed.
