Cervical pregnancy (CP) is a rare form of ectopic pregnancy (< 1%) located on the lining of the endocervical canal with frequency at about 1 in 1 000 to 1 in 18 000 deliveries. Cervical gestation is extremely rare beyond 20 weeks and there are few reports in the literature of vaginal live birth with a high mortality risk. Awareness and early diagnosis is essential due to the possibility of a life-threatening hemorrhage, treated with hysterectomy in the past. Cervical ectopic pregnancy can be mistaken on ultrasound examination with similar pathologies and due to the differences in the management and the outcome an accurate diagnosis is of a great importance. Authors describe two cases of ectopic pregnancies in the isthmico-cervical region successfully terminated with a nonsurgical approach.
