Abstract

The hemodynamic changes associated with ingestion of cocaine may precipitate rupture of ectopic pregnancy. Two cases are presented in which this association was suspected. We believe this to be the first report of this clinical entity, representing a risk factor that should be identified in patients with suspected ectopic pregnancy.
