Cornual (interstitial) pregnancy is more dangerous than other ectopic as it may result in severe hemorrhage, shock with mortality rates ranging between 2-2.5 %. Early diagnosis and management of cornual pregnancy remains mainstay for handling maternal mortality. Management of cornual pregnancy includes medical or surgical management.
