The rarest form of ectopic pregnancy is bilateral ectopic pregnancy and is usually the result of assisted reproductive technologies. We here discuss an unusual case of spontaneous bilateral tubal ectopic pregnancy. We report a 25 year old woman with ruptured tubal ectopic pregnancy on the right side and intact tubal pregnancy on the left side. She was admitted after abdominal pain associated with vaginal bleeding, 42 days after her last menstruation. The diagnosis of bilateral ectopic pregnancy was made after laprotomy and pathology report confirmed the diagnosis. Thus it is crucial to perform a close inspection of the pelvis and contralateral tube during laparotomy.
