We have presented a second case of heterotopic pregnancy after IVF-ET. The most likely cause is direct extrusion of embryos through the tubal ostia by the hydrostatic pressure associated with ET. The diagnosis of ectopic pregnancy must be suspected clinically and not ruled out on the sonographic demonstration of an intrauterine pregnancy. Early diagnosis is essential for the prevention of significant maternal morbidity and mortality after IVF-ET.
