Heterotopic pregnancy (HP) is a rare event combining intrauterine pregnancy (IUP) and extrauterine pregnancy. It can occur in the absence of any predisposing risk factors. We present three cases of HP managed in our department, two in a natural conception and the other following ovulation induction. The three cases had the same clinical presentation and surgical treatment. Preservation of the IUP was obtained in two cases. Unfortunately, the other case was aborted spontaneously on the 2nd postoperative day. Only with an early diagnosis and adequate management, the IUPs will reach viability with a great chance of a favorable obstetric outcome.
