The uterine myometrium is the rarest location for an ectopic pregnancy resulting in the so-called ‘ intramural or intramyometrial ectopic pregnancy ’. It presents a particular diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the treating physician. If passed undiagnosed can lead to life-threatening uterine rupture, which may warrant hysterectomy, leaving the woman with irreversible infertility.
