Abstract

This report describes a case of perforated appendicitis and ectopic pregnancy following in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and embryo transfer. Perforated appendicitis was a coincidental event following IVF and embryo transfer. Immediate diagnosis and treatment of the perforated appendicitis saved the life of the patient. The ectopic pregnancy was completely resolved with two doses of methotrexate administration.
