The incidence of cervical ectopic pregnancies ranges between 1 in 1,000 to 95,000 gestations. Cervical ectopic pregnancies are especially feared due to their associated life-threatening hemorrhage. It is associated with a high morbidity and mortality potential. In the case reported here, a combination of surgical and medical treatment conserving the patient’s childbearing capacity was successfully implemented. Timely intervention is required to preserve fertility loss of the mother and to avoid the need for a hysterectomy. A rare case of cervical ectopic pregnancy is reported and the challenges in the diagnosis and management are discussed.
