Abstract

Objective: To describe the magnetic resonance imaging findings of cervical ectopic pregnancy in the second trimester.

Conclusions: Magnetic resonance imaging findings of cervical ectopic pregnancy in the second trimester include intracervical location of the fetus, endometrial hyperplasia within an otherwise empty endometrial cavity, and irregular placentation in the cervix. Correct recognition of the condition is critical because of the potential for catastrophic and life-threatening maternal bleeding.
