Ectopic pregnancy is one of the major causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. Most ectopic pregnancies are diagnosed very late when mothers present with symptoms of rupture, and it can be fatal. Cornual pregnancy is a rare type of ectopic pregnancy where the gestational sac is implanted in the cornua of the uterus. It is more dangerous than other ectopic pregnancies, contributing to significant maternal mortality and morbidity. It is most often misdiagnosed or diagnosed late. Here is a case report of a patient who presented with recurrent cornual pregnancy and was managed appropriately and effectively at a tertiary hospital.
