An analysis has been done of a series of 573 patients suffering from extra-uterine pregnancy, namely those found suspect upon entering the hospital. The diagnosis of extra-uterine pregnancy was confirmed in 322 (56%) patients. The leading symptom of extra-uterine pregnancy is metrorrhagia (63,41%). As for the operation time, 31 % of them were immediately operated. The ultrasound technique adds to the diagnostic certainty. Our results show that carefully taken anamnesis in addition to symptom recording and a careful clinic examination can make possible the extra-uterine pregnancy diagnosis.
Key words: extra-uterine pregnancy, anamnesis, clinic findings, diagnosis
