Unilateral twin ectopic pregnancy is a rare condition and only about 100 cases have been reported in the literature. In this article, we present a case of twin ectopic pregnancy in the left fallopian tube. A 38-year-old woman who had in-vitro fertilisation came to our department for confirmation of pregnancy. She had high b –human chorionic gonadotropin levels. Transvaginal ultrasonography showed two gestational sacs: one containing a live embryo and the other without an embryo, both in the left adnexa. Twin ectopic pregnancy, even though rare, must be looked for on ultrasound scanning especially in patients having in-vitro fertilisation, because of the potential mortality and morbidity associated with this condition.

單側雙胞異位妊娠很罕見,文獻中只記載約100個病例。本文報告一個有關左輸卵管雙胞妊娠的病 例。一名38歲女子接受試管嬰兒胚胎植入而到本院確認是否懷孕。病人的人類絨毛膜性腺激素水平 很高,經陰道超聲檢顯示她左面附件內有兩個妊娠囊,其中只有一個有存活胚胎。雙胞異位妊娠雖然很少見,但由於其潛在的罹病及死亡率,尤其是經試管內授精的婦女,醫生必須對懷疑個案進行 超聲檢。
