The current case report evaluated a female patient with a history of right salpingectomy subsequent to right tubal ectopic pregnancy that was presented with amenorrhea followed by vaginal bleeding and lower abdominal severe pain. The transvaginal ultrasound examination revealed the presence of ipsilateral right interstitial ectopic pregnancy. The patient was subjected to cornual wedge resection and uterine repair. The pathology report of the excised specimen revealed decidua, chorionic villi, and blood. Recurrent interstitial ectopic pregnancy after previous ipsilateral tubal ectopic pregnancy managed with salpingectomy is very rare, with only a few cases described in the literature. The current study was to evaluate and explain the occurrence of recurrent ectopic pregnancy after ipsilateral salpingectomy using the ultrasound.
