Introduction: Management of missed abortion is matter of concern for obstetrician in terms of its methods and complications. Objectives: To compare efficacy, side effects and complications of sublingual and vaginal misoprostol tablet in missed abortion case of less than 20 weeks of gestation. Methods: Total 300 cases were taken, and out of those 300 cases, group A (150cases) included cases who were given sublingual misoprostol tablet, and group B (150 cases) included cases who were given vaginally misoprostol tablet. Observation: Mean gestational age is 7.9 and 8 weeks in Group A and Group B respectively. P value is 0.94. (Not significant). Mean induction abortion interval is 11.6 hours and 12.9 hours in Group A and Group B respectively i.e., the induction abortion interval is slightly short in the Group A. P value is 0.9, means the difference is not statistically significant. Mean dose of misoprostol was 1004.6 microgm and 1080 microgm for group A and group B respectively. P value is 0.029 is significant. Incidence of side effects (nausea, vomiting, unpleasant taste) was higher in group A than group B. P value is <0.05 is significant. Success rate was 86% in group A and 80% in group B. Conclusion: Sublingual and vaginal misoprostol tablet are both equally effective for medical management of missed abortion. Mean dose required for abortion is more in vaginal misoprostol but side-effects are more associated with sublingual misoprostol tablets.
