Abstract £º
      This study investigated possible effective treatments for cervical pregnancy, a rare form of ectopic pregnancy. The clinical records of 11 cases of ectopic pregnancy admitted to the Third Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University from 1998 to 2010 were analyzed. All patients were treated with intermuscular injection of meth-otrexate (MTX, 50 mg), and oral mifepristone (25 mg, bid). All cases were successfully cured by conservative treatments using methotrexate plus mifepristone. Cervical pregnancy is a contributive factor to mutiple abortions and curettages. Methotrexate plus mifepristone, curettage through hysteroscopy and intracervical obturation with gauze are effective treatments of cervical pregnancy without the need for surgical intervention.
